Alligator takes a swim in Florida pool

This is no advertisement for pool screens. Although, to be fair, those screens are designed to keep out biting insects and biting neighbors’ pets, not the original inhabitants of many Florida developments.

This report from Tampa-St. Petersburg’s Channel 8 shows video from Elizabeth Foster finding an alligator in her pool area. A screen surrounds the pool area. The alligator, apparently, did not care.

Not to go all Tourist Season on you, but maybe it’s a hint that such encounters seem to be more frequent.
