Yikes! Homeowner forgets to close windows, then finds 11-foot gator inside house

Yikes! This would be quite the sight to behold, if you were the homeowner in this story!

If you’re like me and live in the big city, the worst we’ll see is a mouse or a cockroach in our homes. Occasionally there are some crazy stories that come up of people finding other types of animals in their houses like owls or bats. But it’s really in the suburbs where you find some pretty extraordinary wildlife.

Now, that’s just outside the city. In other parts of the country, there are dangerous animals that can wander into your home. Just ask this homeowner, who found an 11-foot monster sitting in her kitchen.

The homeowner called police, and a trapper also arrived at the scene to remove the giant reptile.

The gator was captured, and no one was injured, according to sources.

We think that this homeowner has learned a valuable lesson: she will make sure those windows are shut from now on!

The police’s statement reads,

An unwanted overnight visitor had to be removed from a home on Eagles Landing Circle West in Clearwater. The 11-foot-long gator broke into the home through some low windows in the kitchen. The homeowner called police and a trapper also responded to the scene. The gator was captured and there were no injuries.

What an incredible sight! We’ve never seen a gator this close up—it’s both fascinating and scary! Please share if you know anyone who lives in Florida and want to warn them about closing their windows!
