John Ruel was walking his dog in Oldsmar, Florida, near Tampa on March 20 when he spotted a gator trying to climb out of the sewer when it got stuck. When the trapper arrived at the scene, he had to push the gator backward and then pull the reptile out through the manhole.
The trapper, from the State of Florida Wildlife, responded to the scene and first carefully taped up the gator’s mouth while its head was sticking out of the sewer opening. He then pulled the gator by its tail through the manhole and eventually freed the animal.

Neighborhood resident John Ruel recorded the incident and posted the video on Facebook, featuring the animal trapper calmly rescuing the large reptile. A Florida alligator trapper struggled to extract a 9-foot gator from a sewer in Tampa, eventually pulling him out backwards through a manhole. This Florida man sure captured an unusual scene in his neighborhood that you don't see every day, this alligator was being pulled from a sewer like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles do in the cartoon.

Ruel said that the alligator was about nine feet, or 2.7 meters, long. He also said the trapper told him the gator would not be euthanized. The alligator is fine and expected to be relocated. Ruel said the gator was actually trying to get out of the sewer from a street level drain on Camberley Lane, when it got stuck. Residents will never walk freely in this neighborhood again!
