OSPREY, Fla. (WFLA) – Officials in Sarasota County responded to a “home invasion – of sorts” Monday. An Osprey man found a baby alligator inside his home.
The gator is less than 3’ long. It was next to a computer in the man’s office, deputies said. Animal Services Officer Lauren Campbell released the gator into a nearby lake. “No one knows how the gator got inside the home or how long it had been there,” deputies said.
