Fire Rescue officials contacted a trapper, who responded to the home to wrangle the reptile out of the pool.

The alligator was dragged from the pool to a nearby grassy area, where the trapper taped its jaw shut and tied up its limbs for transport.

Fire Rescue officials said the gator was nicknamed "Gabby."
