BOCA RATON, Fla. - A seven-foot alligator was caught Sunday morning walking through a Boca Raton neighborhood.
The alligator was spotted by neighbors in the Country Park subdivision off Country Park Drive.
First, one neighbor said she saw the alligator walking through a yard and then saw it at a neighbors front door.
Three sheriffs deputies set up a perimeter around the alligator before a person from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) captured the animal.
FWC says the alligator will be processed because it is more than five-feet long.
