(BREVARD COUNTY, FLA) – Florida’s got navi-gators too.

A driver captured a photo of an alligator tied to the back of an SUV while driving down I-95 Saturday, according to the New York Post.

The gator was tied to the back of a bumper with its head and tail barely scraping the road.

“It was on I95 in Brevard County,” Karen Kress, the driver that snapped the chaos, told NBC 6 of the road rage. “I’m 99% sure it was a real dead gator.”

Commentators took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the spectacle:

“That’s a killer bumper sticker,” one user wrote.

“He was headed to a college Tailgator party!”

“Someone bit off more than they could chew.”

Amidst alligator hunting season from August 15 to November 1, Floridians with valid permits are authorized to hunt gators, according to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Officials estimate 1.3 million alligators call the Sunshine state home.
