WATCH: Massive alligator captured in waves at Florida beach

A massive alligator taking a swim at a Florida beach was pulled from the waves in Delray Beach on Wednesday.

Florida Fish and Wildlife (FWC) says they received calls about a nuisance alligator at the beach. When they arrived, an FWC trapper – with the help of police and fire rescue – pulled the alligator from the waves. The gator was transferred to a farm. 

FWC says while the American alligator prefers freshwater lakes, slow-moving rivers, and wetlands, they can tolerate saltwater for short periods.
