Palm Beach Gardens resident, Senta Evans, got the surprise of her life when she went to take her dogs out this morning. While she was outside, she noticed a huge alligator in her pool!
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Committee quickly came out and pulled the big boy out of the water. They said the alligator was 8ft long and over 300 lbs.
Evans said she was shocked to find him in the pool. They do live near a pond, but their yard is completely fenced in. The FWC did warn neighbors that it is alligator mating season so they will be more active.
Make sure you check your yard and nearby areas before letting children and pets outside.
You can also call the Nuisance Alligator hotline to report an issue with an unwanted alligator.
