The Orange County Fire Rescue posted a tweet shortly after noon on Tuesday, announcing the reptile's choice of leisure activity and its subsequent interruption. News outlets report the alligator chose an outdoor pool at a home in southeast Orlando.

Photos accompanying the tweet show the 6-foot (1.8-meter) gator fully submerged in the pool, before trappers safely removed it. The photos show the trappers dragging the animal out a gate, and leaving it in a field.
