What’s nine-feet long and weighs nearly 300 pounds? 

For one Florida family it was the alligator in their swimming pool. 

When Craig Lear got home on Tuesday, he did not immediately notice the large reptile at the bottom of the pool. 

But when he saw bubbles coming up to the surface, he realized there was an alligator in there. 

Lear called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which sent a trapper to the house and the alligator was removed.
