VENICE, Fla. — An alligator was spotted eerily peering out of a storm drain Monday in Florida.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office tweeted that deputies responded to a 6-foot alligator that was stuck in a Venice drain.
Deputies were able to lift the concrete slab to free the reptile.
The alligator was later released unharmed.
Imagine coming across this on your morning jog! Deputies responded to Cerromar Terr., Venice, to help this 6’ 🐊 free himself from a storm drain. THX to deputies who lifted the concrete slab to help him break free. A trapper was called but did not respond so the 🐊 was released. pic.twitter.com/2rQTpN8W3c— SarasotaSheriff (@SarasotaSheriff) December 21, 2020
