9-foot gator found in Florida pool


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WFLA/CNN) – As if Monday’s weren’t bad enough a Palm Beach Gardens family woke up to find an alligator in their pool.

Senta Evans scanned her backyard Monday morning like she always does before letting her dogs out when she saw a 9-foot gator laying on the pool floor. 

The Evans’, who used the pool just Sunday, called FWC. A trapper came but did not have the gear at first to handle the beast. The trapper hooked the gator and raised it out of the pool as the family captured the moment on camera.

The trapper guessed the gator may have gotten in under the chain link fence in the backyard, but the Evans aren’t sure.

The gator was relocated and not harmed
