Some social media users left amazed while some got angry after watching the video of the man capturing the reptile.
A user wrote, “This is fascinating! Florida man has some serious animal catching skills. But why didn’t the alligator turn and run away if it was scared of the trash bin?”
Another commented, “This may seem ingenious, and I applaud his bravery, and ingenuity, what he did is actually illegal. He could be fined heavily, and if the judge is a gator lover, given jail time. We have trained personnel who respond quickly, and remove gators safely.”
