An eight-foot gator on 'Billy the Exterminator'Squirrels and skunks can be nasty, and they can certainly put up a fight. But an eight-foot alligator? That's a much bigger problem to get rid of. That was Billy Bretherton's assignment on 'Billy the Exterminator' (Tuesdays, 10PM on A&E), as he had to capture an alligator at an ATV park, as much for its own safety as that of the riders who might accidentally ran it over.

Bretherton noted that hundreds of kids ride at the park every weekend. "To make matters worse, the water is pitch black, making it impossible to see which part of the gator's coming our way," he said. "This is insanely dangerous."

They did manage to capture the alligator without incident, taping his mouth shut and tying his legs behind his back so he couldn't try to crawl out of the back of the truck during transport. Then there was the matter of letting it go. "Hot gator!"
