Yesterday, deputies with the Pasco Sheriff's Office were called to a furniture store to help remove a trespassing alligator, something which is completely normal here in Florida.

The 4- to 5-foot-long gator was first spotted under a car in the parking lot of an American Freight Furniture and Mattress in Holiday, Florida.



Rather than attempting to carry the gator around the store to a nearby lake, store officials allowed deputies to drag the gator through the middle of the store.

And now we have this amazing clip …

The gator was safely relocated.
