Deputies from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) helped personnel from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wrangle an alligator found roaming the parking lot at the Wendy’s Restaurant in Spring Hill.
According to the HCSO, on the afternoon of Aug. 31, deputies responded to a call reporting that an alligator was loitering in the parking lot of the Wendy’s restaurant, 4720 Commercial Way.
Upon arrival they found the animal and requested that the FWC remove it. “Lt. Grover with FWC arrived to assist and the gator was taken into the custody of FWC,” the HCSO said in a written statement.
