BOCA RATON, Fla. – A Boca Raton resident woke up Monday morning to find an alligator lounging in his swimming pool.
Matt Fino said he had to do a "double take" after spotting the 8-foot gator sitting on the bottom of the pool.
"It's an eye opener," Fino told WPTV.
A Boca Raton police officer stood by at a safe distance until Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers could come and remove the gator.
Fino and his wife said they believe the gator must have come from a nearby canal.
