A hissing sound led police to a 7-foot-long alligator in a roadside sewer opening.

Cape Coral police said they responded to a report of an alligator in a sewer opening last week.

An officer's body camera recorded the video on May 15 of a trapper pulling out the 7-foot-long reptile.

The trapper used a noose attached to a long pole to pull the alligator out head first.

Cape Coral police assisted with the removal of the alligator, which thrashed and rolled a few times on the grass before being put in the back of a pickup.
