Alligator pops out of sewers, terrifies residents

Turns Out Alligators Do Pop Out of Sewers

As "Good Morning America" reports, it turns out alligators actually DO pop out of sewers. Yikes!

"This guy ... right here, that's right. Look at that. Spotted at a country club in Sarasota, Florida. Maintenance workers say the gator is nine feet long," "GMA" reported.

WWSB reports the gator is still prowling free.

"As you can see, he's moving back in the pipe and the Meadow security says it's not unusual that these gators are moving through these pipes. There's a large retention pond right down the street."

As you can imagine, residents aren't too comfortable with the reptile being in their neck of the woods. Resident Daniel Healy said we should all think of what would happen if you were in the area with your grandchildren or your dog.

Apparently, the gator is retreating further into the drain.

Crews have been monitoring the storm drain and were working on a plan of action Friday morning.

First off thats a Storm Drain, not a Sewer.. a sewr is a sealed system, not exposed to the public elements

This is Florida (probably Central or Southern) and what else would you expect to "pop out" of a sewer pipe other than a snake?

Boy, is that scary!!! I'm not big on reptiles of any size....but alligators are beyond terrifying. If that 9-foot
gator decides to take a bite out of someone nearby - that's really bad news.. one reason I'm glad I live
in California.

My late MIL who lived in Florida had a gator which came into her yard periodically. Scared the heck out of me, but MIL was fearless and used to leave marshmallows in the yard for it. I guess they could try to lure the "visitors" out with marshmallows or S'Mores. Sure would have worked in her neighborhood. What is the news about gators in Florida, anyway? They totally are expected by real Floridians, in their neighborhoods or not.

It's sure smart leaving out food for alligators, so they learn to associate humans with food & lose their fear completely. About as smart as feeding bears, raccoon,etc. Then when these animals become a problem, they can be blamed and killed.
