Wildlife officials have removed a 13-foot alligator from a public park near homes in Sarasota County.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office shared images on their Facebook page showing the big-bellied gator.

They were working with Florida Fish and Wildlife on an investigation at Shamrock Park in Venice. That's the same park where two German Shepherds were attacked by an alligator earlier this month.

According to Supervisor Carl Sellitti, who has been with SCSO for 20 years, this may be the largest gator they've ever responded to.
