DACULA, Ga. - A woman emerged from her home in a Georgia subdivision to discover a shocking sight -- a six-foot alligator trying to get into her neighbor's pool!

The gator sighting was made even more incredible by the fact that there are no nearby bodies of water or other gator-friendly habitats, so it's unclear where the alligator came from!

Residents captured the gator on video, but they kept their distance as authorities from the police department and animal control captured the wandering alligator.

It took authorities about 30 minutes to capture the Georgia gator.
