13-foot alligator captured on Florida's Gulf Coast

- Sheriff's deputies assisted Fish and Wildlife officers in capturing a 13-foot (3.9-meter) alligator on Florida's Gulf Coast.
 
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office posted photos on social media the alligator Sunday at Shamrock Park in Venice. The trappers posed for a picture with the gator, which had its mouth taped shut.
 
Sheriff's Sgt. Tim Bauer and Deputy Rob Lowen and Animal Services Supervisor Carl Sellitti assisted with the capture. A trapper took the gator away.
 
Sellitti says this may have been the largest alligator they've responded to in the 20 years he's been with the department.
