Posted: Updated:
LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County deputies used a towel to capture a baby gator Monday night.

A motorist reported the two foot long gator in the middle of Palmyra Road in South Lee County.

When deputies arrived, the gator tried to scamper up a dirt embankment.

After he slid back down, a deputy covered his head with a towel and grabbed him.

After wrangling with him for a few minutes, deputies put him into a Sheriff's vehicle and drove him to some nearby water.

The gator is fine.
