Mike Trinh by name. A lot of people would have called animal control. Or gone inside to get the shotgun. Or run screaming into the road. (OK, only chicks would do that.)

Not Mike. He decided to go mano a mano with the beast.

The guy obviously has balls of brass, but one question does occur to me: if you release the critter into a "nearby creek," what's to stop him from showing up again in your yard...or kitchen?

Story from KTRK in Houston:

>>Man uses inspiration from Steve Irwin, jiujitsu techniques to wrangle alligator in his driveway


It all happened outside of Houston, Texas, on the first day of school for Trinh's children.

When his daughter told him there was an animal in their driveway, Trinh didn't believe her at first.

"I was like 'nah, kid stop it. On your first day, I know you're trying to skip school. Stop it,'" Trinh told KTRK. "She said, 'No! There's an alligator!' I was like, 'this kid is something else.' So, I walked in front. Man! There's an alligator! She ain't lying!"

Trinh jumped into action from there, using inspiration from someone he looked up to during childhood.

"I been watching Steve Irwin since I was a kid, you know what I mean, so it's one of my heroes," Trinh said.

Trinh put towels over the gator's eyes to calm it down, which he recalled seeing Irwin do, then used a sledgehammer to pin its mouth closed.

From there, Trinh said he used a move similar to one he uses in jiujitsu to sit on the gator's back and grab its mouth before loading it into his truck and releasing it at a nearby creek.<<

If you ever watched the reality show “Gator Boys” you would see it’s actually easier than you might to think to subdue them, tape their mouth shut, and haul them off. The smaller ones were actually more dangerous because they were quicker.
