A Florida woman had the shock of her life when she discovered a terrifying intruder enjoying a morning swim in her pool this week – a massive 11-foot alligator.
Lynn Tosi, from Stone Island, recounted how she went out to let her dog out Wednesday morning, only to discover a huge reptile cooling off in her pool after it had ripped open an enclosure.
“It was definitely an unexpected surprise,” said the homeowner he told the ClickOrlando station.
For the people who live on Stone Island, alligators are a common sight, and they know to steer clear of local lakes that are swarming with monsters.
But Tosi said she didn’t expect to find one of the creepy creatures on her property, which is located more than two blocks from the nearest body of water.
Furthermore, the Tosi pool is surrounded by a tall lattice patio screen—but the towering barrier proved no match for the 11-and-a-half-foot monster.
“[it] Tosi said of the alligator’s incursion. “I have no idea how long he was here before I noticed him in the morning.”
Tosi and her husband contacted officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, who pulled the reptiles from the pond and took them away. Because it was considered a troublesome crocodile, it was subsequently euthanized.
This is the third alligator that has been trapped and released in Volusia County over the past week.
On Saturday, a man in Daytona Beach heard what he thought was a knock on the front door and opened to find an alligator, which promptly attacked and bit him.
The next day, a man in Deltona shot another gator that had breached a backyard fence and had the homeowner’s dog’s head in its throat.
Wildlife officials say alligators are becoming more aggressive this time of year, which marks the start of mating season.
