Steve and Susie Polston thought someone was breaking into their house in the Mount Pleasant area of Charleston, but in actual fact it was a nine foot alligator which had climbed onto their porch, according to reports.
The homeowner recorded the video while he tried to get the gator to leave his porch.
The gator had climbed a set of stairs and come in through a porch door. The Department of Natural Resources contractor told the homeowner that the behavior was unusual, he also recorded a video related to the same incident which can be seen here. Credit: Steve Polston via Storyful
