May 8 (UPI) -- A Florida traffic reporter traveling along a busy road captured video of an alligator being captured in the middle of the street.

Hollani Davis, a traffic reporter for WPTV, said she was driving Saturday night on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach when she witnessed the scene near the intersection of Interstate 95.

The video shows a group of people wrangling the gator and guiding it into the back of a vehicle.

Some alligators in Florida seem to have failed to develop a fear of busy roads, with one gator in Tavares late last month holding up traffic by repeatedly walking back and forth across a busy road.

Paul Bedard, Jr., a professional alligator trapper and star of Animal Planet's Gator Boys, was called to an intersection in Tamarac last month to remove an alligator that wandered into the road and was injured by a passing vehicle.
