Derby, Kansas — The alligator saga is over for a neighborhood near Derby, Kansas.
The reptile was captured Wednesday night by two residents who live near the pond the alligator had been spotted in.
"He popped up, said Dennis Moon. It was either a bull frog or the alligator, and it was the alligator."
Moon was among the many Huckleberry Estates residents gathered in the area Wednesday evening.
It was around 9:30 when he spotted the gator.
Moon told his buddy Boyd Altman about his discovery and Altman grabbed his fishing pole.
"A lizard jig, Moon said. First cast he bit into it, and we caught him.
After getting the alligator on land, Moon and Altman used a trash can to corral it and calm it down.
"He maybe rolled once or twice, Moon said. We tried to keep him calm. He was more scared of us."
