Alligator Trainer Jumps Into Tank…To Save Her Own Life!

I have to admit something…

Hi, I’m Noah and I have an addiction to alligator stories.

(Hi Noah!)

It’s kind of a sick, strange obsession.

I just find them fascinating and terrifying all at the same time.

Like a car wreck where you don’t want to look….but you also can’t look away.

That’s me with Alligators.

And Alligators live in Florida, and so while I love all my MAGA buddies living in Florida, I am also fascinated with people in Florida.

How do you people live with these giant reptiles walking around all over the place?

It’s terrifying!

Like this….

Have you seen this?

This thing looks like something out of Jurassic Park and it’s just strolling down a Florida street, no big deal:

You people live with this stuff?

Of course, the worst one was something that happened a few weeks ago…

MAJOR WARNING BEFORE CONTINUING: readers may find this very distressing. 

This is a tragic and horrific story.

I love the FREEDOM of Florida, but I’m not sure I would want to live there.

I’m both fascinated and terrified of all the alligators living in that state.

Every pool of water, no matter how small or shallow it may look, is very likely to house an alligator.

How do you people live around these things?

Its terrifying!

Sadly, one woman paid the ultimate price walking her small dog right along the shoreline.


Ugh, it just makes me sick.

This poor 85-year old woman taking her small dog out for a walk never suspecting it would be her final day.

And what a tragic and horrifying way to go.

I feel so bad for her and her family.

It was all captured on video:

From Fox News, the alligator is said to have weighed 600 to 700 pounds!

A video has emerged showing the moments before a 85-year-old Florida woman was fatally attacked by an alligator while walking her dog in a retirement community.

Gloria Serge was by a retention pond behind her house in Fort Pierce, Florida, on Monday when the 10-foot-long alligator crawled up from the water and first tried to attack her dog.

The surveillance footage shows the reptile swimming in a direct path toward Serge’s dog before it rises out of the water and scampers up the embankment in pursuit of the animal.

The elderly woman was taken to the ground with the alligator then biting her feet, and then she was dragged into the water. While the woman’s body was recovered from the retention pond, the dog survived.

“Please hurry!… It’s a huge gator. It’s huge, I don’t have anything to give to her,” a neighbor is heard saying in a frantic 911 call released by Fort Pierce Police.

“It’s too late. Oh, my God,” the woman is later heard saying.

“Did the gator pull her under?” the dispatcher asks.

“Yes,” the neighbor screams.

“Alright, you don’t see any of her body, nothing sticking out?” the dispatcher says.

“Nothing, she’s gone,” the woman replies.

The alligator, which is reported to weigh between 600 and 700 pounds, was trapped and killed by a nuisance gator trapper.

And now the video.


Watch here:

Backup here:

Absolutely awful thing to happen.

But just one question for the Reporter interviewing the neighbor….

Bro, what kind of question is: “Do you wish you would have gotten to her sooner?”


That’s your question?

FacePalm. 🤦‍♂️

And now the latest…

Now we have a “Gator Trainer” who was feeding a Gator when it suddenly clamped down on her hand.

She reacted instinctively and knew she had to jump into the tank if she was going to survive.

Watch this to learn why:

Backup here:

INCREDIBLE presence of mind and response by this young woman.


She didn’t panic, didn’t freak out, just responded quickly and smartly and instinctively….and she survived.

But here’s what I want to know…

Why did she need to be in the room with the Gator?

That doesn’t seem safe.

You can just throw some food in from up top over the wall or the ceiling or something?

Or through a trap door?

You gotta go INTO the tank with the Gator?

Why in the world would you ever sign up for that job?

You think your job is bad, imagine doing this all day!

So glad she was ok!
