CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - It's a competition no one asked for – how would a metal fence fair against an alligator? Easy answer – it doesn't, and the alligator definitely wins! But, the video is awesome to watch.Eric Dagg told Storyful that he works at the Coral Creek Club golf course in Charlotte County, Florida, which is northwest of Fort Myers, where he recently saw a massive alligator making its way along a cart path. At some point, the alligator tried to make its way through a fence along the golf course.At first, it appears the alligator considers his options, meticulously deciding out which sent of bars to go between.
He slowly places is snout in between a pair of poles and in seconds – bam! – he forced his head and two legs through, as his body bends the poles with seeming ease.A few seconds later, the gator has a slightly more difficult time getting his rear legs through the fence until Dagg's brother goes in to assist."The gator eventually got a little stuck and my brother tried to help get his legs through the fence," he told Storyful. Video shows Dagg's brother try to open the fencing a bit further, while also seemingly trying to help push the gator through.Alligators are part of life in Florida with an estimated 1.3 million living in the state – in marshes, ponds, lakes, pools, and swamps – in all 67 counties. Last week, an 11-foot, 400-pound alligator was found in a woman's pool in Stone Island, Florida.
