In a bizarre case, a man rescued a 9-foot-long alligator from a swimming pool in Florida. The man has been identified as, Paul Bedard of Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, who received a phone call stating that an alligator was in a swimming pool.

The surprising part is that he rescued it with his bare hands. The alligator weighed between 180 and 200 pounds.

While speaking to Fox News, Bedard said “the alligator was mellow when I caught him. I named him ‘Cool Hand Luke’ because the gator was so mellow and so cool. He didn’t try to get away from me, he didn’t try to come after me, he was just really cool. He’s got a real mellow personality".

Bedard, who has been working with alligators for about 30 years, further stated that he had not rescued an alligator of this size from a pool.

While rescuing the alligator, he documented the whole thing and posted it on his Instagram handle, along with seven photos. This whole rescue operation took about 20 minutes. 


Got an e-gator call this morning about an 8 to 9 foot alligator in a swimming pool up in Parkland. The gator had walked through the screen and into the pool. I haven't had a good-sized gator in a swimming pool in probably a year, so I was kind of looking forward to this when I got the call. These are actually fun because the gator can't go anywhere and the water's almost always crystal clear. So all I have to do is jump in the water play around with him until he's tired and I can either hold his mouth shut and put a snare on it and tape it, or if he super energetic I can get him tired enough where I can just pick him up without the tape and carry him out in the yard and then tape him up once I get there. This guy was super mellow didn't really give me a hard time at all, I couldn't get him to spin on me he really wanted nothing to do with me. I simply made a frontal catch put a snare on his mouth and taped him up. Then finally got him to expend some energy.... I didn't want to pull him out of the water until he was tired, because he'll usually go into a death roll and smash himself up on the concrete or, if he's not taped, bite the concrete or something so it's always better to make him expend that energy in the water where is not going to get banged up. He ended up being 8 feet 8 in, and didn't really give me a hassle at all, it was basically as smooth and easy as it ever gets. Thank you Lord, much appreciated. #gatorboysalligatorrescue #gatorboys #rescue #animal #alligator #gators #gator #paulbedard #evergladesholidaypark #everglades #crocodile #croc #greatful #nuisancealligator
