March 7 (UPI) -- Animal control officers removed an alligator that decided to dip into a Florida family's pool on Tuesday morning.

Martin County Sheriff's office shared a photo of the gator as it casually rested at the bottom of the in-ground pool.


"Gator takes over family pool, MCSO working to remove it," police said.

Officials arrived at the scene to remove the gator, that had apparently snuck into the community, and moved it to a nearby body of water.

Prior to the incident police referred to as "Gator Gate" MSCO officers removed another alligator from underneath a family's car.
