WEST PLAINS, Mo. (KY3) - An unusual visitor showed up on the porch of a West Plains family’s home on Monday.

Nicole Meador shared an image with KY3 of an alligator. The female reptile stretched a couple of feet long.

Police trapped the reptile in a trash can and waited for animal control. The alligator escaped an enclosure at a nearby home. Workers at Fishland pet store cared for the gator as animal control searched for the owner.

Meador says she’s thankful the alligator did not mess with her cats.
