Alligator found hiding under Florida resident’s Jeep knocks over light pole

Authorities in Florida said an angry alligator measuring more than 11 feet long put up such a fierce fight during capture that it knocked over a light pole.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that deputies and personnel from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to a Rotonda home about 1 a.m. earlier this week on a report of an alligator lurking underneath the homeowner’s parked Jeep.

Authorities arrived to find the massive alligator, measuring 11 feet and 2 inches long, was in a foul mood.

The sheriff’s office shared video of the alligator roaring as it attempted to escape from a snare around its body.

The struggling gator “took out the homeowner’s light pole,” the post said.
