Watch cop bravely wrestle alligator in Florida

A Boynton Beach police officer wrangled an alligator and released it back into the wild earlier in July. Officer Alfredo Vargas had previous training in handling gators, and didnt want the little guy to be killed by a trapper. According to a Facebook post by the Boynton Beach Police Department, Vargas initially responded to a call of an alligator in front of a residents front door. After being told he would have to wait for a trapper to arrive – a trapper who would likely kill the alligator – Vargas safely wrestled the alligator into his patrol car and released it into a nearby canal.Officer Vargas doesnt know it yet, but weve just made him the departments official alligator wrestler (kidding but not really), the post said.
