Alligator trapped by 18-year-old in Palm Bay

- With around 15 people watching off to the side of the road, Cory Luke stepped up to a 200 pound alligator in the middle of a street in Palm Bay looking to trap the large reptile. 

In the cell phone video you can hear the crowd gasp as Luke wrangles the gator. This happened on Babcock Street in Palm Bay Thursday night. 

The video has since gone viral across central Florida. For Cory Luke he hopes this is just a taste of what he'd like to do for a career. Luke told FOX35 he has always wanted to work for Florida Fish and Wildlife.
