In south Louisiana, no matter where you live, sometime you just never know what will show up at your house -- raccoons, possums, nutria rats, door-to-door salespeople...and perhaps an alligator.

A Breaux Bridge resident had the scare of a lifetime earlier this week when the latter showed up at their doorstep.

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office took to their Facebook page to show everyone what they were called out to investigate and heeded some words of wisdom to residents.

Though this house is located in the heart of Breaux Bridge, it's actually not far from Bayou Teche, so I'm sure that's where this monster was really living.

But wow! I'm sure glad I know some "Swamp People"!
