Metairie residents may want to think twice before dipping their toes in the water at Lafreniere Park.

According to their Facebook page, Lafreniere Park workers pulled a HUGE alligator Gar from their lagoon.

Although this monster of a fish was dead at the time of its removal, spectators claim to have seen the fish swimming around the lagoon recently.

So, the next time you take a boat ride in the lagoon at Lafreniere Park, be wary of the things that may be lurking there!
