VENICE, Fla. (WFLA) – Venice Police discovered a large alligator in the back of a home early Wednesday morning.

Police responded to the home on Otter Creek Drive for reported noises. They encountered a nine-foot gator.

Venice Municipal Government said on their Facebook page that the gator “seemed nice” but, “he wasn’t in the right area for a midnight stroll.”

Officers were assisted by FWC’s Nuisance Alligator Trappers, who helped apprehend the gator and return him to “his neck of the woods.”
