A giant alligator was rescued from a porch in Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission contractor Al Roberts said the gator weighed between 400 and 600 pounds.

“We don’t want to put a rope around an alligator that big in that confined area of the doorstep and it tear up the house, so we’ve gotta take our time to get the alligator out into an area where it’s safe because obviously once you put a rope around an alligator or try to restrain any wild animal it’s going to react, you know, pretty violently,” Roberts told ClickOrlando.com.

He said the gator was aggressive and was 11 to 12 feet in length.
