KNOE-TV reports that all ended well after professional nuisance hunter Jeromy Pruitt safely removed the alligator. Pruitt says it’s alligator mating season, which may have been the intruder’s motive.

“He’s going around to look for a companion. He can’t stay where he is because there’s probably a bigger bull alligator there that drove him out. So he’s got to find his own girlfriends,” Pruitt said.
