Gator tries to get into Plant City mobile home

- A Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputy and a trapper helped prevent an unwanted guest from getting into a Plant City home.

A nine-and-a-half foot alligator was seen in a photo nearly climbing up the door of the mobile home in one photo tweeted by the sheriff's office.

In a second photo, Deputy Krouse is seen helping to hold the gator's mouth shut while the trapper puts tape around its chompers.

The gator was brought to an alligator farm.
