Trapper pulls gator from storm drain in Oldsmar

Here's a sight you don't get to see every day.

John Ruel of Oldsmar posted a video on Facebook of a large alligator being pulled from a manhole on Monday.

Ruel said the gator was actually trying to get out of the sewer from a street level drain on Camberley Lane, but it got stuck.

According to Ruel, a trapper had to push the gator back in.

He was eventually able to pull it out through the man hole.
