An alligator was removed from a mobile home community in Central Florida Tuesday after it approached a resident's front door.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the gator was 9 feet 5 inches long. Authorities said the animal "was attempting to gain entry into a residential mobile home."
Officials said a licensed trapper and HCSO deputy were able to capture and remove the gator before it could harm anyone.
Plant City is about 30 miles east of Tampa.
