Alligator, not Santa, found in Pasco neighborhood

8 foot gator found on driveway

TRINITY, Fla. - Some Pasco County residents saw more then just Christmas decorations while driving around a Trinity subdivision Thursday night.

They found a six to eight foot alligator hanging out in the driveway of one of the homes on Fenholloway Court. Sheriff's deputies were called and stood watch until trappers arrived.

Before the trappers showed up, the gator occasionally got up and started walking down the street. More than a dozen residents were watching, cameras in hand by the time tape was put around the reptile's mouth, and it was put in an enclosed trailer.
