Alligator climbs front door of South Carolina home

Rogers shot video with his cellphone as the reptile headed for the front porch of one of the homes.

“He was trying to climb the fence a couple (of) times, tried to climb somebody's door. It was pretty funny, actually," Rogers told WCIV. "I'm not from the area, so seeing an alligator is interesting as far as I'm concerned."

Jamie Bailey told WCIV that she doesn't know if the gator rang the bell, but she found plenty of scratches on her front door when she got home.

"I thought it was a joke. And the first picture she sent me was from over here and I couldn't see it on the porch. And then they sent me the video front on and I was in disbelief. (I) couldn't believe it," Bailey said. "I mean, who would have thought, an alligator."
