When An 11-Foot Alligator Is Set On Relaxing In Your Swimming Pool 😳

One homeowner in Sarasota County, Florida, was horrified to see they weren’t the only ones enjoying their swimming pool. The Sarasota County sheriff’s office answered the call for help when an 11-foot-long alligator was found basking in a residential pool.

Fortunately the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department was quick to act, and the pool is safe for humans again. Though they may want to clean it just to be sure.
