Massive Alligator on a Florida Golf Course That Some Think Is Fake

Quote:
Is it real or Photoshopped?

That’s the question bouncing around the Internet after the Myakka Pines Golf Club posted photos on Facebook.

Last Friday, a group of golfers preparing to putt on the 7th hole when they allegedly spotted the massive gator making a beeline to the pond on the other side of the putting surface.

It’s said that they wisely gave the big guy plenty of room — but did manage to snap a few photos as he lumbered towards the water.

The photos caught fire on Facebook, generating more than 300,000 views and 4,000 shares in five days.

Many comments about the images question the wisdom of the golfers getting so close to the large alligator. Others wondered if the image was real or something created by using photo-editing software.

Myakka Pines’ general manager, Mickie Zada assures that the photos as well as the gators on the golf course are “quite real.”

According to Zada, in the club’s 37-year history, there are no reports of alligators attacking golfers.

“They usually move when the golfers approach,” Zada said. Adding, “And we tell golfers to just forget about any golf balls that end up in the water.”

When asked if the alligators had names, Zada said, “No, we used to have a much larger gator out there called ‘Big George.’”

Zada sent a photo of “Big George” adding, “He’s no longer at the club. We assume he passed due to old age.” (Last picture)

It's Florida, near water . . . . how are gators surprising?
That's like being shocked at seeing deer.

I'm glad this isn't another story of a giant alligator being shot and displayed all over as a trophy. Although this serves as kind of a hunting ad.

What a beautiful creature. I love their paddle tails! I'm not sure I'd get that close, though.
