(Ocoee, FL) – A Central Florida neighborhood is rid of an alligator that had been wandering around for some time, but the animal knocked out the man who hauled it away.
It happened late last month in an Orlando suburb. Video shown on WKMG-TV shows a Florida Fish and Wildlife trapper loading the eight-foot gator into the back of a pickup truck, with help from police officers.
The gator’s mouth and legs were bound but it managed to whip its head around and head-butted the trapper, knocking him unconscious.

While he was down on the ground, detectives say she poured an accelerant on him and set him on fire with a blow torch. According to police, Perez had placed boards over all the window’s in the one-bedroom apartment. She had told Atkins it was to keep the light out.
