WILLISTON, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida hospital got an unwelcomed guest recently: an alligator.

Staff at Regional General Hospital in Williston called authorities Wednesday about the gator.

Williston Police Chief Dennis Strow told the Ocala Star-Banner (https://tinyurl.com/j3avv5g) they worked with animal control to catch the 5-foot-10 reptile. A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission trapper took the gator for proper disposal.
