Your photos: Gator captured on Largo road
Bente Jensen of Belleair Beach grabbed her camera when she heard officers were blocking a gator frin crossing into morning traffic on Ulmerton Road in Largo this morning. "As I approached, one of the officers got on his loudspeaker and told me to stay back. Once the gator catcher had arrived on scene and roped and taped the little guy, they let me come in closer for some shots," Jensen wrote.
Once she got closer, Jensen took more than 80 photos. Here are a few; see more in tampabay.com's Community Photo Gallery.
"Seems it wasn't the first one he caught this morning," Jensen said.
