This entry was posted in News on by .

It’s unclear what events led to the gator’s capture. The sheriff’s office shared a photo of the giant reptile, which gained more than 2,200 reactions and 3,200 shares as of Monday afternoon.

For all the info. Track all the details.

‘According to Supervisor Sellitti, who has been with SCSO for 20 years, this may be the largest gator we’ve ever responded to,’ the sheriff’s office said.

Knapp told officials he ‘heard one loud yelp from one of the dogs and he heard splashing and saw Rio take off into the water.” Rio came out of the water “bleeding heavily.”‘

How many of these Florida-based films and TV shows have you seen?

You can’t call yourself a true Floridian until you have seen some of the cinema set on our swampy soil over the years.

Moving on.

Whether they were actually filmed in Florida or not, all of these movies borrowed from the ambiance and character of the Sunshine State. From gators and scenic springs to seas of gray heads and a prevailing history of strange crimes, Florida has a lot to offer the big screen.

Here is a list of essential viewing for the Florida film fanatic. Each listing includes the film’s current score on the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, but you should decide for yourself which ones are keepers.
