I don't think it's alligator season as defined by the TV show Swamp People but it is the season when alligators are on the prowl. Quite often those alligator adventures bring the reptiles into places not normally associated with the swamp-loving beasts.

A family in South Carolina recently discovered an alligator on their second-floor deck. There was an alligator seen climbing out of a storm drain in the Bucktown neighborhood of New Orleans and now there is video from Slidell.

In this case, the rather large alligator had decided that a homeowner's garage was a great place to just chill and relax. Imagine the rise in heart rate that homeowner received when they stepped out of the garage door.

The St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1 posted a video of the Wildlife and Fisheries agents doing what they do. The alligator was captured, handcuffed, and hauled away without incident.
