A Land O' Lakes man came home to quite a surprise Wednesday evening when he found a gator in his yard along with state trappers.

John Sivula lives in the Suncoast Meadows subdivision, and says the neighbors had already called state trappers.

"I came home to some excitement in my front yard this evening and our dog was not happy," he said.

The dog barks at the the unwelcome visitor before the trapper takes it away. 

But the craziest part of the story? Sivula says the trapper had five other gators in the cage.
