Footage shows the gator lumbering across a lawn in the residential neighborhood before plopping itself down on a driveway for a rest.

“Walking our pet alligator this morning,” a deputy can be heard saying in the video.

Authorities said the gator took its time getting back to the lake he came from, adding that deputies “can’t blame him just thinking about how heavy that tail must be.”

The alligator slowly made its way back to the lake where it came from, the sheriff's office said.

Officials with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was advised on the gator’s movements, but did not respond, the sheriff’s office said.

“For that reason, it’s safe to assume he’s still swimming in this lake, enjoying this beautiful Easter Sunday,” the sheriff’s office said.
