6-foot gator caught in Cape Coral yard

Just weeks after trappers caught a large alligator crossing a sidewalk in Cape Coral, another gator was spotted along Palm Tree Boulevard.

Halley Vincent who spotted the gator said she was surprised to see it in her yard since she doesn’t live near water.

With the gator just feet from her home, she called 911.
