A nine-foot alligator was found tied up to a tree with its snout wrapped in duct-tape.

Authorities are trying to find out who's responsible.

FWC was called in to help capture the gator in Southwest Miami Dade.

Officials believe more than one person was involved given the gator's size.

People who live in the area say the alligator has been seen around eating small animals.
