The Polk County Sheriff said Deputy Trexler responded to the call about an alligator in a storage shed.
However, Trexler discovered that the creature was actually harmless and that it was actually a pool float.
“He came… he saw… he conquered the beast. It even took her breath away. Literally. The alligator turned out to be a pool floater,” wrote the sheriff’s office.

Recently, a 38-year-old alligator named Bob is getting better from an injury to one of his legs thanks to a team of veterinarians from the University of Florida.
Although it seemed almost impossible, the staff managed to perform the X-ray with which they determined that the animal suffers from osteomyelitis.
