Philly Man Traps Gator in Trash Can

A North Philly man living in Florida, Abdul Gene Malik, had to tango with an alligator on his property.

The video which has gone viral shows the man trying to coax the alligator into a garbage bin.

This was not a small alligator by any means and he did this all while wearing slides on his feet.

The man trapped the gator, which had a lid, in the garbage bin until the authorities could come and take it away.

The Army Vet said he had to take his chances with the alligator because he has kids to protect.

What would you do if you saw an alligator on your property?
