An 11-foot alligator found Belinda Donaldson’s doorstep last Thursday, and the reptile decided it was a good place to rest. Donaldson lives in Tampa, Fla. One of her neighbors called and warned her to stay inside.
A trapper spent more than an hour trying to snag the gator. The uninvited guest was estimated to weigh between 400 and 500 pounds. Many Florida alligators begin to roam in the springtime as they search for mates.
