SARASOTA, Fla. -- It's a good thing a Florida family took a second look before jumping into their pool on Memorial Day.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a 7- to 8-foot gator casually swimming in a family’s swimming pool on Monday morning.

Florida Fish and Wildlife also responded to the incident and captured the gator in the Plantation neighborhood of Sarastoa, Fla.

Officials relocated the gator “to a safer and more appropriate location,” the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s office posted video of the capture on Facebook with the caption: “Because no two days on patrol are ever the same.”
