CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.-Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies went gator wrangling this morning.   The 8-foot reptile was walking around the playground area at the L.A. Ainger  Middle School.   When deputies got there the gator was trying to wiggle under the fence to get out.  A deputy lassoed the gator, dragged him under the fence, across the street and into a canal.
