    Trevor Harding’s roommate got home around 6 p.m., noticed the reptile and walked into their apartment and said:

    “Bro, there’s a gator under your car,” WWSB reported.

    Harding called 911. Rescuers taped the alligator’s mouth shut and used a jack to lift the car and remove it from the garage. It was then placed back into the wild.
