May 29 (UPI) -- An alligator that decided to take a swim in a South Carolina resident's pool resisted a security guard's attempts to remove it and ended up breaking a capture lasso.
A video shows Lt. Vanessa Green with Hilton Head Plantation Security attempting to use a 4-foot pole with a metal lasso to capture the alligator, which forcefully resists.
"I need assistance, he just broke my lasso," Green says into her radio in the footage.
A second officer arrived with more capture equipment and the alligator was snared with a stronger lasso. It was released in a lagoon down the road from Collins' home.
