When the Polston family of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina was awakened by loud noises on their porch Easter morning, they wish it had been the Easter Bunny!
Instead what they found was a 9 foot, 300 pound alligator. It was shocking to the family because the beast had to climb a 15 foot staircase and break through a screen door to get there.
The perfectly good explanation is that gators are looking for love when they get out of hibernation and he was probably looking for his breeding grounds. The family called the South Carolina Department of Natural Resource to remove the alligator.
