Alligators are common in Florida, but luckily this wasn’t an actual alligator. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Twitter post that a sheriff’s deputy responded to a home on report of an alligator in a storage shed and arrived to find it was just an inflatable pool toy. The tweet says, “Deputy Trexler went to a call about an alligator in a storage shed. He came… he saw… he conquered the beast. He even knocked the wind out of it. Literally. The gator turned out to be a pool floatie.”
