Only in Florida! A family got up on a Monday early morning at their Palm Beach Gardens home to find an unwanted visitor in their pool. And they wouldn’t have the ability to remove it without some help.
Senta Evans scanned the backyard before allowing the dogs out as she always does, but this moment she found something in the swimming pool. She shouted for her husband, Mike, that really did not expect to see such a large creature. They called trappers to save what they believed was a six-foot alligator. It turned out to be 9 feet long!
The family watched the trapper in amazement as he drew the gator out of the swimming pool. The man believes it may have entered their backyard under the chain link fence but could not be certain.
In their 12 years at the home, the family had never encountered a gator in the yard. They’ll continue to enjoy the property but take extra precaution in the future.
