Florida homeowner describes finding alligator on porch

Help

A woman in Parkland, Florida has described her shock after finding an alligator on her front porch.

Jan Castaneda says at first she thought her husband had bought a blow-up alligator as a prank but realised it was real when it blinked.

The family had to call a trapper to remove the 2.5m (8ft) reptile.

The man measured and taped the alligator's mouth before taking it to Everglades Holiday Park.
