A Central Florida police officer took a selfie with an alligator stuck in a compromising position.
The Palm Bay Police Department shared a photo of the officer taking the selfie on its Facebook page Thursday morning.
They believe the gator found its way into the sewer drain and got stuck.
Officials called the Florida Fish and Wildlife team, who sent a trapper to free the gator from its makeshift prison.
Palm Bay police also issued a warning on the Facebook post to never feed or approach a gator.
They assured no officers or gators were harmed in the making of the photo.
