Florida man catches alligator with trash can

In this footage, an alligator lurks on the porch of a Florida home. The alligator retreats uneasily from an unusual adversary: a square trashcan turned on its side. The trashcan moves toward it under the direction of a man who is certainly not an animal control officer. The alligator tries bellowing at the trashcan, but the large polyethylene vessel continues its advance. In a well-executed denouement, the man flips the trashcan's lid onto the alligator's snout, baiting it into a tactically catastrophic lunge into the darkness.
