    Woman Fends Off Alligator with Paddle


    This woman said ‘see you later alligator’ to this curious reptile as it made it’s way to the paddle boarder with it’s mouth open.


    The tense clip was recorded by interior design salesperson, Vicki Baker in the Silver Springs river, Ocala, Florida, USA on the 8th of September.


    The large gator emerged from the mangroves and made it’s way to Vicki’s inflatable paddle board.


    Shocked and scared, Vicki tried to gently shoo off the beast and was met with an ominous hiss.


    It repositioned itself and again swam past the board which instilled further fear as another attempt to divert the path with the oar managed to belay the advances made.


    Vicki said: “I couldn’t believe what was happening since I have been there hundreds of times.


    “I pushed the Gator away twice with my paddle and he kept coming back.


    “He didn’t go away until the glass bottom boat came around the corner and used his loudspeaker.”
