LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A three-foot-long alligator who has found a home in a suburban Atlanta pond has some neighbors on edge.

Muhammed Kabir tells WSB-TV that he lives along the banks of Dunlin Lake in Lawrenceville, where the gator swims, sunbathes and stalks its prey.

Kabir said the alligator has become almost like the neighborhood pet. But residents say they're concerned that the gator will keep growing.

Authorities believe the gator was a pet that someone might have dropped off in the lake.

Residents say they've contacted animal control and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
