In the early hours of Friday morning, a woman was delivering newspapers in Clearwater, Florida, when the headlights of her truck flashed on someone in the street.
The quest for a midnight snack had led a hungry reptile right to the door of a housing complex — and he did not seem happy.
The delivery driver took out her cellphone and immediately dialed 911. “There is about a 10- to 15-foot alligator that was in the road and it is now thrashing around in front of one of the units,” she told the emergency operator. “If that owner wakes up they’re going to have a big problem.”
