Caught On Tape: An Alligator in the Kitchen!

While many of us get a little jittery about large bugs or mice in our homes, one Florida woman had to contend something much more dangerous. She found an alligator in her kitchen.

Authorities say 69-year old central Florida woman found an eight-foot long alligator prowling in her kitchen late Monday night.

Sandra Frosti 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, Florida just north of Tampa.

The woman's troubles didn't end with the gator. She also had to contend with a disbelieving 9-1-1 operator.

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.

The gator will likely be destroyed.
