Next time you are considering water skiing in Florida….Life is about choices
The first 2 pictures were taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over LakeThomas , Winter Haven , Florida .
The helicopter pilot and the game wardens on the ground were in communication via 2-way radios.
Here is a transcript of their conversation.
‘Air1, have you a visual on the gator, Over’
‘Approaching inlet now, Over’
‘Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth….moving in, over’
‘Oh Crap it’s a Deer!’
‘Confirm Air1.. Did you say Deer?, Over’
‘Roger………a Deer in its mouth….looks like a full sized buck….that’s a big gator, boys.
We’re gonna need more men, Over’
‘Roger Air1…..can you give me a idea on size of animal, over’
‘It’s a big one…..25 feet at least, please advise, gator is heading to inlet….do I pursue?, Over’
That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!
