Sheriff's deputies arrived at the home with a licensed trapper and snapped a picture of the alligator climbing the porch stairs and propping itself up against the man's front door.

The alligator, initially estimated by the homeowner to be about 8 feet long, measured a more impressive 9 feet, 5 inches long.
