Florida Traffic Stop Ends in Wild Photo Op

Alligator hunting down in the Florida has been ongoing for the past month, which has made for strange encounters on the streets of Sarasota.

After a man and his wife had returned from gator hunting, a Sheriff’s deputy pulled them over for a busted tail light on their boat trailer. When officers approached the trailer, they were in for a shocker.

First the boat was covered in blood, quite a suspicious sight even a rookie officer. Then they saw a dead alligator with Superman duct tape around its mouth.

After checking the man’s paperwork and hunting license, they all had a good laugh about the scene. The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office shared a photo with a letter from the couple on their Facebook page.
