The Clean Cut: Huge alligator roaming a Florida golf course caught on video
Posted June 6, 2016
A video of an alligator taking a walk around a Florida golf course has been viewed nearly 6 million times since it was posted Monday. Charles Helms, a 56-year-old man, captured the alligator’s appearance on his phone.
Golf.com reported that when Helms was asked why he recorded the alligator, he said, “A better question might be, 'How can you not record it?'”
“He was at a pretty safe distance,” Helms told golf.com. “This alligator was so large, he would only move slowly about 100 feet at a time before having to lie down and rest, so he probably wasn’t in as much danger as it may have appeared. An alligator expert may refute that; I’m just going on what I have been told.”
