Zoo-wee-mama! A Houston resident came face to face with a  nine foot alligator in his home, thanks to the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Brian Foster found the squatter when he returned home to assess the damage. He had to call the  Texas Game Warden in order to get the dinosaur out!
The Harris County Constable Precinct 4 posted on Facebook the following:
Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s Office responded to an intruder call at a residence near Lake Houston. Upon arrival, deputies were met by a large alligator who made his way into this flooded home. Constables will soon be delivering the alligator back into his natural habitat.
Here is a video of the monster being carried out of the home by several officer, with its mouth taped shut:

 What would you have done if you walked into your home and found the scaly monster? Coming from someone who grew up in Florida and has even been bitten by an alligator, I would have booked it!
Here’s a fun fact, in case you are ever in a situation where you need to outrun a gator, then zig-zag while you run. It may sound silly but alligators cannot zig-zag, however, they run extremely fast in a straight line.
