A pair of Lee County sisters are wondering what's next, just one day after an alligator was found in their pool.
It all started Wednesday when the two sisters woke up to a three foot alligator swimming in their backyard pool at their home on White Pond Road.
They called Animal Control to relocate the alligator somewhere else, but Thursday morning, a turtle showed up.
The two women tried to get the turtle out on their own, but got nowhere, so they called Animal control again. The officer took some extra time, but soon evicted the solo swimmer.
"We may have to hook you up on speed dial," said the responding Animal Control officer.
"My sister enjoys this pool but I don't think she is going to get in anymore," said homeowner Barbara Cotton.
Animal Control says that because of recent rains, these animals are able to go places they normally wouldn't go, like this popular pool.
If you find animals like alligators and turtles on your property in Lee County, call Animal Control at (229) 759-6037.
