A brave Florida man took it upon himself to remove a 9-foot alligator from a pool with his bare hands!

Paul Bedard, who stars in the Animal Planet show “Gator Boys” went viral after posting a picture of the alligator that he calls Cool Hand Luke. He said the animal was mellow and chill.

“These are actually fun because the gator can’t go anywhere, and the water’s almost always crystal clear,” Bedard said. “So all I have to do is jump in the water and play around with him until he’s tired.”

People reports that the gator weighed 185 pounds. Cool Hand Luke will now be transported back to safety in the Everglades, .

Bedard adds that many of the fears about gators are not true, most of them can be tamed.

“Sure, anything can happen,” says Bedard. “But generally, when you’re on land, they’re six inches tall and you’re six feet tall. They’re not going to mess with you. You’re more likely to get attacked when you’re swimming. They’ll see your head sticking up out of the water and think you’re the same size as a nice duck,” he added.“That happened to me, and I had to elbow the gator in the throat.”
