PALM BAY, Fla. – An alligator that became stuck in a storm drain “photobombed” a police officer’s selfie before it was rescued.
A Palm Bay police officer was dispatched earlier this week to a neighborhood where an alligator was stuck in a storm drain, according to a Facebook post.
The officer snapped a selfie before the gator was removed by a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer.
Palm Bay police said the gator “probably found his way into the sewer drain and got himself stuck pretty good.”
Officials warn residents to never approach or feed an alligator and to report nuisance gators to FWC by calling 866-FWC-Gator.
According to the post, no animals were harmed in the making of the photo.
