Sunset Beach Police Department

TAMPA (WFLA) – The Sunset Beach Police Department in North Carolina had to take away an unwanted visitor from a neighborhood pool.

Officers were dispatched to Oyster Bay Drive for complaints of a 9-foot alligator walking through the neighborhood.

Police say the gator attempted to enter the community pool area and had broken through a porch lattice at the neighborhood’s reservation office in an attempt to cool off.

The gator was relocated to a nearby pond due to concern for the safety of the residents.
