Deputies rushed to a busy Seminole County intersection because an alligator was roaming and going to be in harm’s way.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office posted photos to social media showing a deputy and a Florida wildlife officer getting a gator before it headed out into the intersection of U.S. 17-92 and Ronald Reagan Boulevard.

Deputies said on Facebook, “A citizen reported that the five-foot reptile was heading towards the road before hiding under some construction equipment.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission relocated the gator to a safer place.
