That gator breaking into your house isn’t a dream

A Clearwater, Florida woman realized an alligator had broken into her home after she found it thrashing around in her kitchen in the early morning.

Mary Wischhusen thought he new air conditioner was acting up when she heard a loud noise after waking up at 3:30 a.m. to go to the restroom.

Imagine her shock when she came face to face with an 11-foot alligator rummaging around her kitchen.

“I heard this huge, monstrous crash, like the whole roof was falling in on the side of my house,” Wischhusen said. “I headed for the kitchen and as I got to the door of the kitchen, I had this beautiful face staring at me as though he belonged there. This 10-foot gator was having a marvelous time sitting in my kitchen.”

This gator wanted some wine REALLY bad!

It managed to gain entry by smashing through a low-level window, where it proceeded to ruin everything in its path.

Breaking in wasn’t the only thing this gator had in mind. It wasted no time in going for the wine stores as it smashed right through them.

“It’s all over my floor,” she later said.

But she wasn’t going to fight the gator for ruining her favorite reds.

“I decided I wasn’t staying there, so I went back to my bedroom and closed the door and called the police,” she continued. “I was hyperventilating a little, so what I did was I went on the computer and played games to settle down.”

Authorities escorted Wischhusen out the back when they arrived, spending the next two hours getting the gator out.

Wischhusen has seen plenty of alligators during her almost 40 years at her home. This is just the first one that’s ever made a house-call.

Having an alligator break into the house isn’t ideal. However, at the end of the day, she’s just happy to have gotten out without anyone getting hurt.

“He could have come right after me. I’m very happy he did not come after me.”
