A large alligator was spotted wandering underneath cars in the parking lot of the Renaissance Persevere Way Apartments.

A WINK News viewer submitted a brief video on Friday, claiming that the reptile was aggressive and a persistent threat to the Fort Myers apartment complex.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told us that, as of right now, they don’t have any record of this gator.

Normally, if an alligator is present, they will send a trapper.

You can call this number (866-392-4286) if you come across an alligator.

It’s FWC’s alligator nuisance hotline, but FWC said an alligator may be considered a nuisance if it’s at least 4 feet in length and a threat to people or animals.
