A husband’s plans to celebrate his and his wife’s 25th wedding anniversary suddenly turned wild on the discovery of an alligator lying out in his back yard. It’s not the most unheard-of thing in the world – unless you live in Southern Ontario, Canada! Walter Ertsinian lives in the city of Hamilton, in a part of Canada that normally has four seasons: a springtime with moderate temperatures, a summer that ranges from 80 to 100 degrees on average, a fall that goes back to a more temperate feel, and a rather unpredictable winter that’s often so cold it puts the Good Humor man in a bad mood. So, how on earth did an alligator end up here?!

Ertsinian told the local news that the five-foot-long reptile almost derailed the dinner plans he had arranged for his wife and children while their family tried to fathom how to deal with the issue. Typically at home in a warmer climate, alligators are most often found in states such as Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. Not entirely sure that animal control would know what to do when confronted with such a critter, the family first called the police.

Ertsinian explained that it was his daughters, aged 11 and 18, who first noticed the gator on that night while they were finishing up a swim in their family pool. At first, they thought it was a toy. “They both looked at it and said, ‘maybe dad bought something for the pool like a vinyl blowup thing, or maybe dad bought some kind of weird statue as a joke and put it on the side and didn’t tell us,”‘ Ertsinian said of his daughters’ reactions. “And then they saw the head move and said, ‘no, it’s alive!”‘
