Officers Henry and Looney found the gator on Sunday afternoon, according to a hilarious Facebook post.
"This gator thought he was skinnier than he was (haven't we all) and attempted to squeeze through the fence, getting caught in the process," they wrote.
The two officers were able to remove the animal from the fence but weren't quite so keen on its attempts to repay them.
"The gator wanted to give them a kiss for helping, but they respectfully denied his advances," they added.
While the gator made it out of the ordeal intact, its self-esteem might have taken a bit of a blow.
