The ferocious Florida Gator, seen as a nuisance by many, he truly is a southern icon. And the bad behavior of a few of these Florida natives shouldn’t paint the entire swamp dwelling group with a bad reputation. But enough about football, this story is about alligators.

Mike likes to find the “unusual” or “out of the ordinary” stories in our Local Routes. He says the best part of his job is getting to know people he would otherwise probably not get a chance to meet. Mike is widowed, has two terriers named Truman and Dexter, and is constantly at war with the vines growing in his backyard.
