A husband and wife were startled last week when they discovered a five-foot alligator inside their new Louisiana home.

Don and Jan Schultz, originally from Arizona, recently moved to New Iberia, Louisiana, and called police to remove the reptile, according to a viral video shared by the couple.

Mr. and Mrs. Schultz suspect the alligator likely made its way into their home through a dog door on the evening of June 23, according to the video. (SEE it at the top of this article.)

Panda, the Schultz family’s Australian cattle dog, reportedly alerted the couple of the alligator’s presence at around 1:30 a.m., according to the video’s description.

Don Schultz wrote that he grabbed his pistol while he checked on the disturbance and “could see a shape on the edge of the rug” after he turned the corner into the hallway.
