Deputies respond to report of alligator hanging out on porch

Gator hauled away after mouth taped shut

Photo does not have a caption

PARKLAND, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff's Office posted a photo of an alligator Thursday on Twitter that was found on the porch of a home in Parkland.

BSO officials said deputies were called to the home after the gator was found near the front door.

A photo shows the gator being removed from the property with its mouth taped shut.

It's unclear where the gator was taken.

Another Parkland homeowner found an alligator outside their home in April.

Elena Avello told Local 10 News that BSO told her to call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, whose officers bound the gator's mouth shut before hauling it away.
