Residents Find Alligator In Backyard Pool

LITHIA, Fla. (AP) — Some Florida residents woke up to an uninvited guest in their backyard swimming pool: a 7 to 8-foot-long alligator.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Hillsborough County deputies responded to the Lithia home Wednesday morning. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission trappers arrived a short time later and captured the large reptile.

No injuries were reported.
