American Alligator swimming in the spring swamp in Texas

The police action here is impressive. Imagine a nine-foot alligator standing next to your car. I would probably be in shock. Apparently, this happened to some people in South Carolina.

Apparently, an alligator of nine feet made its way into the parking garage of an apartment complex in South Carolina. The incident took place on May 20, 2022. One of the apartment complex’s residents found the alligator. The person who lived in the complex was walking their dog around 3 p.m. and then saw the massive alligator. They quickly called the police.

This alligator, however, was no match for the police.

Video shared by Charleston Police Department shows Animal Control Supervisor Courtney Bayles leaping on the reptile’s back like a wrestler to control it. A couple of guys then jumped on top of Bayles to prevent her from being thrown off by the gator. After grabbing the snout of the alligator, others began wrapping tape around its mouth.

The alligator was safely tethered. The whole process took only 30 seconds. Facebook users have viewed the video more than 29,000 times. It is unknown how an alligator got into a parking garage. This man’s wrangling skills are admirable. Honestly, Rick Flair should get these cops into wrestling. You can watch the video HERE!

    You might wonder why a city defined by its steep hills could be the best city for avid cyclists, but it’s those challenging inclines that help bikers develop strong endurance — and legs. That and San Francisco simply has a lot going for it: The city coasted through just about every category but owes its win, particularly to Access and Climate. San Francisco swept four out of six Access metrics, and among our best 10 cycling cities, only the Golden City managed to rank in the top 25% in Climate. Weather matters when you’re out in bike shorts — that’s how otherwise great biking cities lost the race again to San Francisco in our ranking.
