Alexis Dunbar was astonished to find a 7-foot-long alligator hissing at her from a guest bedroom in her Palmetto, Florida home over the weekend.
ABC News: Dunbar screamed for her boyfriend, who propped up a small table against an opening in the hallway to keep the gator in the guest bathroom until officials arrived to remove the animal.
Alexis’s lost house guest the second too-close-for-comfort gator encounter in recent weeks in Florida. Gary Morse, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation, explained that with over a million alligators in Florida alone, that he thinks residents should be ‘more informed when it comes to the dangerous wild animals.

Dunbar says the gator was hungry and was chasing the her cats around the house.
