DONALSONVILLE, Ga. – See ya later, alligator.
According to WSB-TV, crews in southwest Georgia captured and relocated a gutsy gator Friday after the reptile was spotted near First Baptist Church in Donalsonville.
In a Facebook post, Donalsonville police shared photos and a video of workers using a snare to pull the alligator out of a parking area, where it had been lounging underneath a truck.
“Get the duct tape,” a voice can be heard saying in the now-viral video, which had been viewed more than 17,000 times by Tuesday morning.

The trappers eventually did just that, taping the thrashing alligator’s mouth and feet, WSB-TV reported.
Police said Seminole County Code Enforcement and “a concerned citizen” helped capture the animal, which was relocated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
