TAMPA, Fla. --A man in Florida was startled from his bed by some banging at the front door. When he went to get it, he found a seven-foot long alligator. "I thought it was a burglar or something. Something was going on. I just wake up and look at the gator and call 911," said Jose Roca.
A trapper was called in, and the gator was removed from the porch. It was hauled away and euthanized.
The trapper said the gator might have been targeting the man's dogs.
