GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. - A Golden Gate Estates family had an early trick-or-treater on Friday morning. 
A ten foot gator laying down on the front steps.

The homeowner in the Waterways community tells Wink News she woke up to deputies shining their flashlights into her bedroom window and warning her.

"Don't go through the front door, don't go through the front door whatever you do don't open the front door," said homeowner Lauren Moseley.

3:08 .. Don't go through the front door .. Don't go through the front door whatever you do don't open the front door

 

 

 

 

 

Don't go through the front door .. Don't go through the front door whatever you do don't open the front door!

 

Neighbor Patrick Warren and his family had spotted the gator and called 911.

The gator was eventually removed and euthanized by fish and wildlife.
