VIERA, Fla. - Marie Maxwell says she was watching Jeopardy when she heard a knock at the door of her home in the Suntree neighborhood near Viera. When she opened it, an alligator she believes was longer than 6 feet was staring at her.
She called an alligator trapper, who on Sunday put what looked like a large pot roast on a rope in the pond.
On Wednesday, something took the bait and Maxwell called the trapper. He pulled a 4-foot alligator from the pond, but Maxwell says it's smaller than the door-knocking gator.
The search continues.
