- This is the shocking moment an alligator being transported away from a residential area lashes out and headbutts a police officer, knocking him out cold. The eight foot reptile, which had it’s jaws and feet bound, was being picked up and loaded on to the bag of a truck when it suddenly lashed out and connected heavily.
The police officer, who had been nearest the reptile’s jaws, took the weight of the whipping motion straight to the face as the alligator tried to wriggle free. Filmed in Ocoee in Orlando, Florida, the alligator was seen walking from door to door forcing authorities to come and relocate it to a safer area.
The alligator managed to whip it’s snout at the officer after it was restrained by a Florida Fish and Wildlife trapper and loaded onto the bed of a truck sending the man sprawling to the ground. After recoiling its body from the headbutt it then whipped it’s tail, hitting the two other men trying to contain it.
Although Florida is famous for its gators, the Ocoee residents live away from a body of water, and were stunned by how far it had wandered. Experts say the reptiles usually wander further when they are looking for a mate or hungry and in search of a meal.
