Earlier this week, deputies responded to a home on Oakland Hills Place in Rotonda, Florida, around 1 in the morning after the homeowner found a gator underneath their Jeep.
MyFWC Florida Fish and Wildlife were called out to assist Charlotte County Sheriff’s Deputies and unbelievably enough, this 11′ 2″ gator took out the homeowner’s light pole.
In the video below, you can hear this gator literally roar like a lion as deputies try to wrangle the big fella.
On Wednesday a Florida man was treated at the hospital after an alligator bit him in Myakka City, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
It happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. FWC received the call of the attack and responded, with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and Manatee County EMS.
43-year-old Eric Merda of Sarasota was reportedly bitten by an alligator near Lake Manatee Fish Camp located at 23745 County Road 675 in Myakka City.
Merda was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries to his arm. Following the bite, an alligator trapper was called to the scene to locate the gator.
The FWC is continuing to investigate this separate incident.
