Firefighters in Florida went to help what they thought was an unconscious person in someone’s yard recently but when they arrived on the scene, it was actually a giant alligator!

Honestly we are not sure why this is newsworthy, it’s Florida!

Anyways, it took authorities over an hour to catch it as it moved about slowly and unfortunately had to be put down.

At least the local kids can go back to school and say the most common Florida phrase known to man, “Uhh, guys? I think I just saw an alligator at my house.”
