Florida Man Goes Mega-Viral Wrangling An Alligator In A Trash Can

Ah, Florida…

Beautiful beaches, Disney World, gators, and meth…

There’s nothing like waking up to see “Florida Man” trending on the internet. And most of the time you can usually count on a headline that reads a little something like this:

“Florida Man Loads Car With Frozen Iguanas, They Warm Up, Come Back To Life, Cause Car Accident”

(That’s a real headline by the way, you can read it here.)

Anyways, much to my surprise, this morning’s Florida Man wasn’t going viral for ripping bath salts and trying to eat tires in the local Publix parking lot… no, this dude was trying to catch a gator.

I mean, do you even live in Florida if you’ve never had to wrangle a gator?

So while gator wrangling is pretty par for the course in Florida, this dude’s method of capture was not… grab a garbage can.
