'Mom, look what I caught!

On a fishing trip with his friends at a canal near his home in US, a 10-year-old boy caught a 1.8m alligator.

Not knowing the big reptile could easily eat him up alive, Michael Dasher dragged the alligator home.

His grandfather was shocked to see the alligator in the front yard.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers were called to the Rockledge home last Wednesday.

Michael told the officers he had been fishing with friends when something big caught the hook and snapped the line.

He said the alligator ran at him, so he started hitting it with sticks and jumped on its back.

The boy then dragged the alligator home and suffered only minor scratches on his hands and arms.

Wildlife officers said they would release the alligator back into the St. John's River.
