A deputy in Polk County responded to a call about a possible alligator in a shed, but quickly realized it would be easy to subdue.
The sheriff's office said Deputy Trexler responded to the 911 call, prepared to find a large reptile.
Instead, he found a pool float.
"He came... he saw... he conquered the beast," the sheriff's office wrote. "He even knocked the wind out of it. Literally. The gator turned out to be a pool floatie."
They ended their post with a hashtag reading, "Tune in next time when he wrestles a pool noodle."
