The Indian River County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a beach in the neighborhood near St. Christopher Lane to remove the loose gator.

The sheriff's office posted a photo to Facebook showing the deputies posing with the bound alligator.

"Deputies assisted a professional trapper who was used to capture the alligator," the post said. "The animal will be relocated to an area well clear of this residential neighborhood."
