The story is wrong.. Jared was called and brought the duct tape and some gloves so they could catch it.
Alex Perry spotted it and Shawn caught it.

Hell no it wasn't theirs!

no sorry not a hoax i caught it and pretty much had no idea that id eveyr see it there and yea it got out of somebodys house but it didnt belong there a family was swimming 100 yards down stream, yea it was only 3 1/2 feet long but it still would have done some damage to someone if happened to step on it. so we did what we had to do and caught it before it could get any bigger without and predators the alligator would have upset the ecosystem and with 3 more warm months of non stop feeding it would have just grown and grown. so say what u want but its legit... and yea call me redneck sorry im from duram and not affraid to do things outside

You weren't there and you didn't see what happened, so keep your mouth shut. Your opinion on this article is not needed. And to whoever called them rednecks -- how do alligators have anything to do with being a redneck?? Comments like these just need to be kept to yourself!
Thank you

Thank you, truly, for stepping up. You sound like a very nice person and I am sorry that there are idiots around that have to dump on people just because their own lives are so worthless. Keep up the good work!
Thank you
