MARTIN COUNTY, FL.(CBS12) -- A Martin County neighborhood is back to normal today, after a huge gator was found strolling down their quiet street last night.

The gator was 8 feet long and 150 pounds! Residents immediately called 9-1-1 after seeing the unwelcome visitor. When deputies arrived, the gator was trying to hide in someone's bushes, and made it clear he wasn't coming out without a fight.

With help from gator expert "Trapper John", it was taken into custody. It's now headed to a gator farm.
