A Florida man recently filmed a determined alligator break through a cast aluminum fence as easily got to the other side.
The eye-popping event, which took place in Placida, Fla., drew comments from a local weatherman in the Sunshine state, according to Forthewin.
“Welcome to Florida, home to Jurassic Park,” joked Matt Devitt, the Chief Meteorologist for WINK News on Facebook. “Check out this big guy bend the aluminum bars and plow right through it this week in Placida. He eventually got through according to the viewer who shot the video. Only in Florida!”

Devitt acknowledged the point that a cast aluminum fence is not nearly as sturdy as a wrought iron fence, but nonetheless, it was still very impressive.
It’s unknown how long the gator is, but from the naked eye, it had to be at least 8-10 feet.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, approximately 1.3 million alligators call Florida home.
