Authorities say 69-year-old central Florida woman found an 8-foot long alligator prowling in her kitchen late Monday night.
When Sandra Frosti went to check out an odd noise she heard in her kitchen Monday night, what she found on the floor was worse than cockroaches. She says the gator must have pushed through the back porch screen door and then went inside through an open sliding glass door at her home in Oldsmar, just north of Tampa. It then apparently strolled through the living room, down a hall and into the kitchen.
A trapper with Animal Capture of Florida removed the alligator, which was cut by a plate that was knocked to the ground during the chaos. But no one inside the house was injured.
