VENICE (FOX 13) - There may be a ‘welcome’ sign hanging at the door, but this may not be the kind of houseguest that these homeowners expected.
Deputies in Sarasota County were called to a home on Clubside Circle in Venice because of an alligator that walked right up to someone's door.
Animal Services estimates this guy was between 7 to 10 feet.
The sheriff's office posted the pictures on Facebook, along with a reminder to show all reptiles courtesy during the upcoming mating season.
