    Officers stopped the truck to check for a day-use pass in a wildlife management area when they found alligator parts scattered inside the cab, according to the FWC.

    A Florida man was slapped with a citation after Florida Fish and Wildlife officers made an unusual find in his dashboard: an alligator foot.

    FWC officers stopped the truck to check for a day-use pass in a wildlife management area near Lake Okeechobee when they found alligator parts scattered inside the cab, the agency wrote in a Facebook post Monday.

    Among the parts was a gator foot hanging out of the truck's dashboard.

    The driver claimed the parts were from an alligator he had hunted a few years ago, but the smell told officers otherwise, the FWC said.

    The man then confessed to killing the gator a few days before without a permit and was cited for the violation, authorities said.
