Florida Deputy Helps Relocate Alligator Found in Tampa Neighborhood

A Hillsborough County deputy is making a name for herself as an alligator wrangler after she helped relocate multiple alligators in Tampa, Florida.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said deputy Wheaton helped relocate a 10-foot gator in early April and also relocated another alligator from a Tampa neighborhood on April 29. The sheriff’s office jokingly referred to the deputy as “Crocodile Dun-Wheatee.”

The sheriff’s office said this footage shows Wheaton, Deputy Noland, and Deputy Morrey working to relocate an alligator that was found “taking a snooze” under a car on April 29. The footage shows the approximately 4-foot alligator latch onto a broom, allowing Wheaton to drag it to a safer location. Credit: Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
