According to Ruel, the gator was spotted on his street, just a few houses down from his home. The gator was trying to climb out of the sewer when it got stuck.

A trapper was called in and had to push the gator backward and then pull the reptile out through the manhole.

Ruel said he was told by the trapper that the gator would not be euthanized.

Not something you see everyday in the neighborhood! He's about 9ft and the trapper said he would not be euthanized.
