Emergency officials including police, lifeguards, and animal control officers trapped the ‘gator and relocated him to a safer environment — presumably the Everglades. We are awaiting official word on the Gator’s new home.

No one was injured. Witnesses tell BocaNewsNow.com that it was “one heck” of an experience to see the Alligator so close to people. We thank the reader who submitted these photos to BocaNewsNow.com.
