After morris convinced her husband the gator was real, she called the sheriff. At first, she didn't realize how big the animal was.
"I misjudged it. I thought it was only about 4 feet long. When I called the sheriff and they asked me what size it was, I told them about 4 feet. And my husband called me back out here and he's like, 'You need to call them back. It's a little bigger,'" said morris.
The alligator measured 7 feet and 4 inches. A game warden tied up the animal and took him away.
The Morrises think the alligator may have come from a canal behind their property.
