Un caimán de casi 9 pies fue atrapado en una piscina en una casa de Florida el pasado martes.


Sucedió en el vecindario de Parkland, al norte de Miami Dade, cuando los residentes de la vivienda notaron al intruso dentro de su piscina.

El caimán había caminado a través de la malla y hacia la piscina de acuerdo a la página de Instagram @gatorboysalligatorrescue que compartió varias imágenes.

El trampero Paul Bedard dijo que tuvo que jugar con el cocodrilo en el agua hasta cansarlo y poder sacarlo después.

«No he tenido un caimán de buen tamaño en una piscina probablemente en un año, así que estaba ansioso por recibir esto cuando recibí la llamada», dijo Bedard. «Estos son realmente divertidos porque el caimán no puede ir a ninguna parte y el agua casi siempre es cristalina».

Got an e-gator call this morning about an 8 to 9 foot alligator in a swimming pool up in Parkland. The gator had walked through the screen and into the pool. I haven't had a good-sized gator in a swimming pool in probably a year, so I was kind of looking forward to this when I got the call. These are actually fun because the gator can't go anywhere and the water's almost always crystal clear. So all I have to do is jump in the water play around with him until he's tired and I can either hold his mouth shut and put a snare on it and tape it, or if he super energetic I can get him tired enough where I can just pick him up without the tape and carry him out in the yard and then tape him up once I get there. This guy was super mellow didn't really give me a hard time at all, I couldn't get him to spin on me he really wanted nothing to do with me. I simply made a frontal catch put a snare on his mouth and taped him up. Then finally got him to expend some energy…. I didn't want to pull him out of the water until he was tired, because he'll usually go into a death roll and smash himself up on the concrete or, if he's not taped, bite the concrete or something so it's always better to make him expend that energy in the water where is not going to get banged up. He ended up being 8 feet 8 in, and didn't really give me a hassle at all, it was basically as smooth and easy as it ever gets. Thank you Lord, much appreciated. #gatorboysalligatorrescue #gatorboys #rescue #animal #alligator #gators #gator #paulbedard #evergladesholidaypark #everglades #crocodile #croc #greatful #nuisancealligator

Bedard es conocido como uno de los «gator boys» que rescata caimanes de patios traseros, piscinas y garajes y luego los lleva al Everglades Holiday Park.

«Terminó siendo 8 pies y 8 pulgadas, y realmente no me dio mucho trabajo en absoluto, fue básicamente tan suave y fácil como siempre», dijo Bedard.
