The Clearwater Police Department tweeted that the gator was successfully removed from the Clearwater condominium belonging to Mary Wischhusen early in the day on Friday. There were no injuries.
A walker is used by Mary Wischhusen. According to what she told news outlets, she went to her bedroom and closed the door to call the police the moment she saw the large reptile.
Wischhusen said she played games on her computer while waiting for police and trappers to arrive and help. She’s a gamer!
According to Wischhusen, it required 10 police officers and two trappers a couple of hours to remove the gator from her house. She has lived there for nearly the past four decades.
Here is the Tweet by Clearwater Police:
