OSPREY, Fla. - A rare home invasion in Sarasota County has a lot of people baffled.

A three-foot baby gator somehow ended up inside a home in Osprey, Fla.

The reptile was discovered next to a computer in an office at the house.

The owner said he has no idea how it got inside or how long it had been there.

Animal control officers were able to catch it and release it into a nearby lake.
