TAMPA, Fla. — If there’s a warning sign up about alligators, there’s a good chance you’ll find one in that area. Sometimes, even directly under that sign.
That’s what Tampa police were warning people about after they found an alligator by an alligator warning sign in Rowlett Park Sunday.
Police called the alligator very angry and very large, a combination Floridians don’t like to see in the scaly reptiles.
Officers said a trapper was able to come out and help them take the gator into custody.
It is unclear if the alligator will be charged for loitering.
