Gator surprises homeowners in east Bibb County

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

There was a 12-foot surprise in a Georgia man's backyard.

He found an alligator! It had apparently made its way into his backyard from a nearby swamp. The gator decided to make a new home in east Bibb County, frightening some homeowners. That's when they called the Sheriff's office.

"He said ‘Look over to your left,' so I looked right here in this corner right here, and saw this big ole something, and I said good god almighty there is an alligator," says homeowner Hosie Mackey.

That alligator was eventually captured by crews with the Southeastern Reptile Rescue.

It will be released in a new less populated area.
