Palmetto, FL (AP) - A woman found an unwelcome weekend guest
in her bathroom -- a 7-foot alligator.

Alexis Dunbar says she screamed and the gator hissed when she
found it inside the bathroom of her home Saturday afternoon. Her
boyfriend propped a small table by the bathroom to keep the gator
inside until an officer from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission showed up to take him away.

Dunbar believes the gator used a doggie door on the back porch
to get inside the house. Dunbar lives in Palmetto, which is south
of St. Petersburg.

Spring is mating season for alligators and wildlife officials
urge people to be extremely cautious, especially around water.
