Wouldn't be surprised if it was a real video, even though there's always a chance these days it could have been faked. It looks pretty similar to the "golf course gator". The more and more people coming into contact with these animals the more used to them the alligators become. On top of that the alligators, and the numerous species of animals dumped by people apparently never stops the masses wanting to move to the state.

Before I left So FL, homes were already built up to the everglades and protected park areas, couldn't go any further. Seeing gators wasn't exactly rare, especially if you lived on a lake connected to the everglades through the canals. I can imagine the sightings in more city areas are even more common now. In some of the county parks it wasn't uncommon for some to feed the baby alligators. The adult ones wouldn't bother you unless you would agitate them.

I saw it on the news this evening. I think it's real.
I saw a picture of a 15 footer hanging in a gas station in north Carolina. It was taken on a bridge right outside the door.
They named him but I couldn't tell you what it was. When I went outside again I walked over to the bridge and the stream it was crossing. No gator in sight. Thank god. But I realized that the gator spanned two lanes of the road.
The biggest I ever saw in the wild was about four feet. Still I gave it a wide berth.

I have doubts killing these animals.

If they eat people, fine.

Imagine what's out there.

Yeah, them suckers move. When I lived down there we had a pet gator in the pond behind the house. Three-legged about 5' long, called it dino. We would get too close and out of nowhere the thing wiggled that tail and three legs or not you better haul ass.

After the "storm of the century" all the roads and ponds flooded. We got the courage to swim across the big ponds. Not one of my brighter moments. We would see gators all the time. Kids.
