Terrifying: Dad Wakes Up In The Middle of the Night to Find 10ft ALLIGATOR Scratching at His Door

When one hears noise coming from his yard in the middle of the night, it’s common to wonder if it’s a burglar. One man investigated and discovered that it was worse than a prowler, but a 10-foot alligator!

Metts Bahadir has lived in Florida for the last 30 years and has never seen an alligator

That was until last Thursday.

Bahadir was at home in Lutz, north of Tampa, when he heard a noise so loud he thought a motorcycle had crashed into his house.

It was the middle of the night, and he could also hear scratching.

But what he found was a massive, 10-foot long alligator sitting by the door and trying to get inside.

‘It was scary,’ Bahadir told ABC Action News.

‘It was like the wild kingdom was at my door.’

Bahadir called Tampa Police, who then called a trapper to help wrangle the alligator.

From inside his house Bahadir captured video of the trapper lassoing the huge bull gator.

The alligator was eventually killed, according to local media reports.

There were no other reports of injuries.

However Bahadir and his wife, Sheri, have two sons – five-year-old Aaron and eight-year-old Devin – and the encountered has scared the couple.

‘I am worried for their safety,’ he said.

‘I don’t know why it was allowed to get that big without taking action.’

‘If I had opened the door I could have gotten me.’

Try not to think about this story the next time you hear something go bump in the night outside…
