Coosada residents are up in arms over an alligator tonight.

A seven foot gator kept traffic on the Coosada Parkway at a stand still for hours.

Cars were backed up for at least half a mile in both directions.

State officials were able to move the alligator to a nearby ditch.

However, due the nature of the alligator's injuries, officials were forced to euthanize the creature on the scene.
