Florida: Anyone who is battling scorching summer afternoons would relate with the urge to leap into a backyard pool. But sometimes people might run into some unexpected guests as they venture out to cool off.

A family in Florida was shocked to find a massive alligator in their backyard pool as they called local authorities to catch the reptile. As a trapper tried to get the eight-foot alligator out, it attempted the death roll and made violent attempts to escape.

The alligator was finally removed from the pool and later moved to a safe location as authorities warned of more such intrusions during mating season.
