NEWORLEANS-- A surprise guest was waiting for Alberta Gremillion when she arrived home Friday: an alligator.

The New Orleans East resident drove up to her house to find a six-foot alligator sitting in the front yard, blocking her path to the front door.

Neighbors took snapshots while the fire department waited for a licensed trapper to show up and remove the reptile to the relief of Gremillion who could finally get inside her home.
