PALMETTO, Fla. (FOX 13) - An alligator with a thirst for knowledge decided to step foot on an elementary school campus in Manatee County.
The 8-foot, 2-inch gator was found outside Palm View Elementary School in Palmetto Wednesday afternoon.
The school's principal closed off the area near the large reptile and called wildlife officials.
The alligator was safely removed from campus.
