Alligator Defies The Odds and Scales Fence In Florida

One of the many reasons that home or business owners choose to install a fence is to protect their property from unwanted guests. Having a barrier gives many individuals peace of mind that they will avoid intruders but sometimes you may be caught by surprise and find that certain obstacles for animals can still be overcome. For example, in the article, a Florida woman recorded  an alligator climbing over a fence at Naval Air Station in Jacksonville. When interviewed, they explained “We have several on the base and they don’t respect our security measures. On the serious side, always be aware with small children and pets. Golfers be aware and watch where you stick your hands. Do not approach them ever!” It is important to understand that having a fence in place will make your property more secure but to always be conscious of your surroundings and not to assume that predators of any size can’t gain access if they try.
