Alligator relocated from patio of Florida home

A Florida police officer and a municipal employee came to the assistance of a resident who found an alligator sunning itself on their patio.

The Kingsland Police Department said in a Facebook post that an officer captured the alligator outside a Kingsland home with help from Dale Taylor of the city’s Planning and Zoning Department.

The post included photos of the alligator lurking on the patio outside the house.

A video shared by the police department showed the gator being released into the St. Marys River.
