FORT MYERS,Fla. (WFLA) — Public works crews got a big surprise when they went to investigate complaints about water backups and foul smells in a Fort Myers neighborhood.

Crews discovered a dead, 11-foot-long alligator in a drain.

The alligator was discovered in the Whisky Creek neighborhood.

A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesperson said they did not get any calls about the incident. FWC also said alligators do not usually get stuck in storm drains.More News
