TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A Gulf coast woman had a special visitor at her house: an alligator.

Jenny Roca called 911 early Tuesday morning. She told the dispatcher that the reptile was in front of her house.

She says she heard someone touching the door and when she went to check, she saw the gator. It was 6 feet, 7 inches long.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued a permit for a trapper to get the alligator.
