Shocking 9-Foot Gator Pulled from Storm Drain

When a 9-foot alligator finds itself stuck in a storm drain in Oldsmar, Florida, the trappers had to be called in for a daring rescue.

At first, it appeared that the trapper had a tough time pulling the gator out, as it seemed to want to climb back into the storm drain instead of being rescued.

He was successfully removed from the storm drain unharmed and relocated to a more gator friendly community.

"We were happy he was rescued and that he wasn't hurt," said John Ruel, who captured this video in his neighborhood.
