An Unwelcome House Guest

FLORIDA - A couple in Coral Gables, Florida was at home when they heard a knock on the door, but the knock turned out not to be a person.

Luann and George Alonso saw the shock of their lives when they found a nine foot alligator making a house call.

"I looked out the window, I couldn't see anything, as soon as I turned the light on, I saw that big gator right there right in front of the door, the tail was facing the front window, his body was against the door so we couldn't get out," said George Alonso.

The house backs up to a canal, and the gator could have just been out on a late night stroll.

They called police to investigate, and then called a trapper to take the animal away. The gator proved hard to reel in. It death rolled while the trapper pulled, tugged and finally hauled him away.
