This very good boy isn't afraid to show a measly gator who's boss.

Land O' Lakes resident John Sivula told WFTS that he returned home on Wednesday, April 26, to find a trapper wrestling a gator out of his yard. His dog was particularly displeased by the reptilian visitor.

According to WFTS, the gator had managed to make its way to the front of his house, but Sivula says neighbors had already called a trapper before he got home.

It seemed to be a busy day for gator-catching: Sivula says that the trapper had five other alligators in his cage.
