Chillin' gator! Alligator found relaxing on gator raft in Miami-Dade pool

By Jeff Tavss - Executive Producer

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - Sometimes even alligators need to kick back and relax in the pool.

A man on vacation in South Florida says he caught a gator with a gator over the weekend in the home he rented in southwest Miami-Dade County.

David Jacobs of Georgia was in town for a wedding and first noticed the alligator in the lake behind the home. He said at the time the gator was taking a keen interest in the family's small dog.

But the big surprise came Sunday when the family came home to find gator in the pool, sitting on top of an alligator raft.

Jacobs claims he called the home's owner, who in turn called a wildlife management company to remove the gator... the real one, not the blow-up version.

Attempts to verify Jacobs' account have been unsuccessful.
