Teen Fisherman Grabs 5-Foot-Long Gator In Central Pa.

Posted: Updated:
HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pa. -

You expected to see trout, maybe some bass while fishing in the Keystone State.

But a fisherman in central Pennsylvania caught more than he bargained for.

Ron Parsons and a group of his friends stumbled upon a five-foot long alligator.

The teens spotted it while looking for a good spot to drop their lines in Huntingdon County.

The group quickly sprung into action, capturing the gator.

Parsons says he was never scared.

"It was trying to bite us a little bit and it was giving us a bit of a fight. And then we got its mouth taped and we carried it probably 150 yards to where we can get it to a pickup truck," said Parsons. "I tell you, the adrenaline was pumping pretty hard. I mean, you don't normally come out here and find a gator."

No one is sure where the gator came from, but the Pennsylvania Game Commission says whoever is responsible could be in a lot of trouble.
