According to report, the alligator sneaked into the swimming pool of the Craig Lear through patio screen netting on Tuesday, reported the Huffington Post.
Crag noticed the bubbles in the pool when he let his family's three cats out onto the patio. Initially he thought it a golf ball from the neighboring course had fallen in.
After realising the presence of alligator in the water he made a call to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It took an hour to bring the reptile under control.
