Insurance Claim Denied After Destructive 11-Foot Gator Break-In

 Thursday, July 18, 2019


A Clearwater woman became something of a celebrity when a giant alligator broke into her home back in May.

But now, she says she’s getting anything but the A-list treatment from her insurance company as she tries to claim the damages the gator left behind.

At the end of May, Mary Wischhusen woke up in the middle of the night to find an aggressive, 11-foot-long gator had broken into her Eagles Landing home.

The creature smashed windows, wine bottles, and glass furniture, and left holes in her walls.
