BOKEELIA, Fla.-- A man wrangled an alligator he says got to close to his home.

Michael Stauffer sent us this video. He says he caught the gator and put it in the back of his truck. It was near his Bokeelia home.

Stauffer took the alligator to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Officer so it could be released somewhere farther from his home. 

However, Stauffer says he wouldn't catch another gator again, because transporting animals. like alligators, can be illegal.
