Watch out for gator crossing!

Police in a small town in north Florida said a hungry gator briefly shut down a highway Monday.

The High Springs Police Department posted the video on their Facebook page, and it's been shared more than 7,000 times in less than 24 hours.

Police said the reptile briefly shut down NW US Highway 441 in Alachua County after feeding on a deer.
