Deputies were called to Frostproof Middle-Senior High School Thursday to remove the gator.
As officials were waiting for a trapper to arrive, the school’s principal and athletic director helped deputies to wrangle the reptile.
No students were at the school at the time and the gator was removed without injury, deputies said.
When the trapper’s too far away....Deputies & school staff save the day! Frostproof High Principal Windham & athletic director Loveless helped Deputy Yates trap the interloper. No kids @ the school. Gator is not harmed. All in a day’s work in good ole #Polk pic.twitter.com/xQKZ0VaGmQ— Polk County Sheriff (@PolkCoSheriff) June 28, 2018
