According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred at 5:19 p.m. Friday at 117th Drive North and 101 Street in Seminole.
Deputies assigned to the Patrol Central District responded to the residence after receiving a 9-1-1 call reporting an alligator stuck in the storm drain. The witness told deputies that someone pushed the alligator further down the drain in order to prevent it from crossing the street and getting hit by a car.
Personnel from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to take possession of the alligator.
Deputies say the seven-foot female alligator will be transferred to an alligator farm.
