Alligator finds way into Orange County resident’s pool

An alligator found its way into an Orange County resident’s pool last week.

On Thursday, August 11, deputies from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home in the eastern portion of the county in response to an alligator entering a pool.

The homeowner says that when she woke up, she found the alligator had crawled into her pool.

Officers that arrived on the scene caught body camera video of the alligator as he swam around the pool.
