PARRISH, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – It took two hours for alligator trappers in Parrish, Fla., to wrangle a massive 12-foot, 500-pound gator that was lurking in a waterway there.

The gator, which was trapped Wednesday, was “menacing” divers who were working on a private project on the waterway, WKMG-TV reported.

One of the trappers, Jim Cutway, told the news station the divers first noticed the gator while underwater. They promptly got out and called for help.

“The divers had less than 5 feet of visibility, and they knew he was there,” Cutway told WKMG-TV.

“The gator was very close them. He was bothering them,” he added.
