Massive gator takes a dip in Florida family's swimming pool

LITHIA, Florida -- A Florida family was surprised to find an uninvited guest who stopped by for a dip in the pool, but because he was a 7-foot long gator, the family could not let him stay.

The family called in a trapper, who happened to be tracking this particular gator for a while, and finally got him.

The trapper was able to tire the beast out before catching him and hauling him off to a more gator-appropriate setting.
