Gator found in Gulfport Swimming Pool



A Gulfport resident got a big surprise in backyard on Monday when she found a gator in her swimming pool.

Officials say the 5-foot-alligator that took up a residence in a backyard swimming pool is on its way to a new home and Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks officials plucked it from the water.

Resident Pam Jones said she opened her back door to let out her dog when she spotted the alligator in the pool. The animal was swimming around, then climbed out to sun itself at poolside.
