Swan Lake Iris Gardens in Sumter had more than swans swimming in the lake today!

Hal Gonzales happened to be by the lake this morning and snapped these pictures. Gonzales says the gator appeared to be 3 - 4 feet long, and said park rangers were trying to capture the gator.

Officials at Swan Lake Iris Gardens said they were able to catch the gator. They say they transported the little fellow to a release center in Santee.
