Tampa woman finds 7-foot gator in her bathroom
A Tampa woman by the name of Alexis Dunbar received the shock of her life when she stepped into her a bathroom of her home in Tampa Florida to find a 7-foot alligator starring up at her on the morning of April 23, 2011. Obviously,startled by the unwanted bathroom dweller Dunbar revealed that she was so shocked to see the creature that she screamed, the large gator then gave off a loud retaliation hiss directed at Dunbar.
“f I was that woman I believe I would not have a need for the bathroom any longer, but how in the world did a 7-ft gator get in her house, that is insane that an animal that large can find its way into some ones home, she better gator proof that house tweeted one Cincinnati reader.
Dunbar revealed that her boyfriend used a hall table to prop it up against the bathroom door to hold the large alligator hostage until the deputies from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission showed up to capture the animal.
Just how did that alligator get in the woman’s home? A mystery that remains unsolved, but speculated on. The only answer Dunbar could come up with that made any sense to her was that the alligator made its entrance through the doggie door located on the back porch.
Dunbar revealed that after speaking with a neighbor, the neighbor claimed to have heard some noises coming from her back porch around 3:00am but thought Dunbar’s two cats were getting a bit rambunctious. Dunbar has two cats that enter and exit through the pet door at will and luckily survived the night without becoming a midnight snack for the large house guest.
Dunbar estimated that the gator must have been hanging out in her home all night, until she returned home around noon, she did reveal that some small furniture was moved around a bit. Dunbar revealed that after this adventure the cats are going to be placed under restriction and she plans to do away with the doggie door.
