Florida homeowner describes finding alligator on porch
A woman in Parkland, Florida has described her shock after finding an alligator on her front porch.
Jan Castaneda says at first she thought her husband had bought a blow-up alligator as a prank but realised it was real when it blinked.
The family had to call a trapper to remove the 2.5m (8ft) reptile.
The man measured and taped the alligator's mouth before taking it to Everglades Holiday Park.
