12-foot alligator found inside newly-built Florida home

A 12-foot alligator was none too happy when he was dragged out of a newly built home in Babcock Ranch, Florida. 

Construction worker Matthew Goodwin captured footage of the spirited gator being lassoed and removed from the house by a local wrangler. His video shows it took two men to drag the beast clear of the house, with some sliding doors also having to be removed.
