Police personnel can be seen as the personification of ‘daredevils’. They can handle just about anything from minute house problems to solving terrorism cases. But imagine a policeman getting scared of a mere reptile. Yes, dealing with reptiles almost your size can be a nerve-wracking experience for anyone especially when your dealing with an alligator. Case in point, this video shows a police officer’s hilarious reaction while dealing with one such reptile. Posted by ‘Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office (Official)’ on Facebook, the video has received over 7.1 lakh views and more than 15,000 shares since August 25.
The video was accompanied by a caption which said,”Our deputies respond to all kinds of calls, from crime to gators! Side note, we’re not sure if our deputy was screaming like that, but it sure sounded like it, haha.” The video shows a Louisiana cop jumping up in surprise while handling a gator. The police officer had tied the reptile’s leg and to the officers surprise the gator turns its head suddenly. Following it is the officer’s reaction who shoots up in the air and high-pitched scream can be heard at the same time.
Several people have posted comments on the video. While some explaining that it was not the officer who screamed, others asked the cop to clarify who made the sound.
“Officer!! You need to clear your name about that high pitched scream,” says one Facebook user. “The person filming screamed, not the deputy that jumped,” suggests another.
“I saw it like 20 times and it’s still funny,” says one commentator on the video. “His mouth is taped but I would have done the same thing,” says another.
