    Police in Miami Gardens had to wrangle a small gator that decided to make a pit stop at a local gas station.

    Officials said they received a call in the middle of the night Tuesday that the gator was in the gas station, and two officers who are skilled wildlife handlers responded.

    The officers were able to trap the gator and returned it to its normal habitat, as recommended by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, after taking some photos with the tiny gator.
