Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Trappers catch a six-foot alligator on the tiled patio of a woman's Treasure Coast apartment Tuesday.

Mary Halverson, of 671 S. Centre Court S.W. in Vero Beach, called deputies after she spotted the gator making himself at home among her plants and outdoor furniture at about 8:50 Wednesday morning.

The porch was surrounded by a privacy fence, and deputies said it looked like the alligator squeezed in under the fence.

The deputies described the alligator as being between 6 and 8 feet.
