According to Patch
, the massive reptile was presumably on its way to a nearby lake, but instead decided to take a stroll through the campus of Geneva Classical Academy at approximately 2 p.m., on March 17.
A video posted to the school's Facebook page
, shows a local trapper eventually lassoing the campus crasher shortly before the school's dismissal.
“Our students received a good Polk County education today: how to trap a 9’11” gator,” the school wrote on its Facebook page.
It's also worth noting that the man called in to capture the gator wasn't wearing any shoes, which is incredibly Florida.
A 10-foot gator was safely trapped after wandering through campus at a Lakeland school, Thursday afternoon.
