Who could have thought a trash can, popularly known as dust bin in Nigeria, will come in handy in dealing with predators? Well, this man in Orange County, Florida who was caught on camera hauling a live alligator in a trash can, clearly thought so.
It is not clear why or how the reptile left its comfort zone to come roam on the human-inhabited greens in the County.
But it’s captor was nice to it, and instead of coming at it with spear and dagger, he came at it with a garbage can, carefully waited for it to enter the can, even though it had been trying to resist the trash can arrest.
The man then lifted the can, after he was signaled by his neighbours that it had entered it. He then carefully closed the can, and rolled it to the nearby pond, where the crocodile-esque lizard may have come from.
Americans sometimes encounter these animals, especially those who live close to fresh water bodies. Crocodiles tend to live in saltwater habitats, while alligators hang out in freshwater marshes and lakes.
They are often times seen on golf courses there.
