Alligator Breaks Into Florida Woman's Kitchen

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Last night, a raccoon invaded my neighbor's house. We watched as it climbed a brick wall and pulled apart sheathing to get in under the roof, which is minor compared to the experience of a Clearwater, Fla., woman. An 11-foot alligator smashed through a window into her condo and broke bottles of wine, wine that might have been useful as the woman barricaded herself in a bedroom. It took two trappers and 10 cops to get the reptile to leave. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
