Imagine waking up to loud noises coming from  your porch. You peak through the window and think maybe you're still sleeping and this is all a dream.  

Well, the Polston family of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina were not dreaming. Instead they found a 9 foot, 300 pound alligator. The gator climbed a 15 foot staircase and then broke through a screen door to get there.

The family called the South Carolina Department of Natural Resource to remove the alligator. Check out the video here and additional videos of large alligators visiting below.
