Video footage showing a US cop jumping into the air and screaming while capturing an alligator, has left thousands in giggles.
In the video posted on Facebook by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, a few deputies can be seen taping shut an alligator's mouth.
One cop jumps up and let out a high pitched scream when the reptile jolts its head up. Fellow officers couldn't help but burst into laughter.
"Our deputies respond to all kinds of calls, from crime to gators! Side note, we're not sure if our deputy was screaming like that, but it sure sounded like it, haha," the Facebook post said.
The 15-second clip has gone viral and viewed more than 700,000 times.
Several commented about the video. However one wasn't so sure it was the officer who jumped that screamed. "The person filming screamed, not the deputy that jumped," said one Facebook user. "Officer!! You need to clear your name about that high pitched scream," said another.
You be the judge.
