A 7-foot-long alligator found its way into a Florida resident's garage yesterday.

“One local resident on Hobblebrush Drive in North Port had a seven-footer trying to catch a ride this afternoon,” says the North Port Police Department in a Facebook post.

According to police, the confused gator was safely removed from the garage and crept back into a nearby canal.



Gators finding their way into people's homes isn't that uncommon in Florida. Last May, a 11-foot alligator smashed its way through a window into a Clearwater resident's kitchen.
