Alligator in front of Winn Dixie on Fruitville Rd.


Sarasota deputies were called to the Winn Dixie on Fruitville Road to collect the 4-foot alligator. It was found resting under a white SUV, which had a man inside. No word on how the man got into the SUV without the gator nipping his toes. Sgt. Mark Tuls and Deputy Lincoln Dilling pulled the alligator out, taped up his jaw, and put him into the back of a cruiser. 

A big thank you to our law enforcement for what you do everyday!
