A construction crew in Florida encountered an unexpected situation Monday when they attempted to unclog a large underground pipe.
The crew was working on a project just after 11 a.m. near Indiantown when they came across a 5-foot alligator.
The sheriff's office said the gator tried to elude workers by running into a pipe on the site.
Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were notified and later contacted a local trapper.
The trapper arrived and was able to successfully remove the reptile.
No one was injured.
