Golfers make way for massive gator in ‘Jurassic Park’ moment

·1 min read

A number of Florida golfers ceased play briefly over the weekend to allow a giant alligator to cross the fairway.

The accompanying footage, shared to Facebook on Monday by WINK, shows the gator walking slowly across a fairway as one golfer observes that the reptile is handicapped.

“He’s missing a foot,” he says.

Matt Devitt of WINK Weather wrote on Facebook: “Check out this big boy walking across a Bonita Bay golf course this past weekend from a WINK viewer. Welcome to Jurassic Park!”

Viewers may note that the golfers in the background, while affording the gator a wide berth, appear more interested in plotting their next shots.

Among the 300-plus comments was this from a viewer named Brandi: “I love how everyone is just going about their golf game, like there’s not a baby dinosaur walking across the course!”

A handful of comments echoed the sentiment expressed by a viewer named June: “I would give up golf for sure.”
