Giant Alligator Roams Florida Golf Course

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community
A 15-foot alligator took a stroll across the fairway at a golf club in Florida…  the video shows the enormous gator making his way slowly past the bunker near the third hole on the way to a lake.

Metro reports:

This reptile was pictured walking across Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto in Florida.

Charles Helms, who caught the incident on his mobile, said he initially thought it was part of a practical joke.

‘I was stunned and silent,’ he told ABC Action News.

‘I didn’t know if we were being punked or something. YouTube video:

‘It was just laying down, resting, when it got up and started moving towards the big lake.’

The alligator is estimated to be about 4,5metres long but it’s not actually the first time it has appeared on the course..

‘He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him, he’s like a mascot for the course,’ course employee Wendy Schofield told 3 News.

‘He has been here for a very, very long time … There have been guesses that he’s 15 to 16 feet long.’
