Gator removed from under Pasco County vehicle

- A Land O' Lakes couple woke up Tuesday morning to a neighbor warning them of an alligator under their truck.

Elaine Thomas said she was woken up by a neighbor ringing the doorbell. Her husband answered the front door and was informed there was an 8.5-foot alligator underneath his truck. The couple contacted law enforcement.

Before long, a trapper was on his way to Roderick Drive. He managed to wrangle the gator into his truck.

"I've been here for 15 years," she told FOX 13. "I've seen it on the news, but never thought it would reach my neighborhood."
