WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) - A small alligator held up traffic over the weekend, according to the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office.

In a post on the agency’s Facebook page, WCSO said that a six foot alligator “decided to camp out in the middle of the road” and was impeding traffic along the way when it “decided to take a break in the roadway.”

“The gator was not exactly thrilled about our efforts to move it from the road and let the deputy know about their displeasure, so we decided to call more qualified help,” explained WCSO.

As a result, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission stepped it and relocated the alligator to a safer spot across the road.

You know something that never really comes up in the police academy? That on a random afternoon you might be called...
