Matt Fino was taking his dog, Charlie, out for their routine morning stroll when he found the gator, according to WSVN.

"I couldn’t even,” his wife Janet Rosa told WSVN. “I was in total shock.”

Rosa said he called the police, who called gator trappers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
