The viral video has garnered over thousands of views and over 200 shares. Baker’s friends and followers flooded her comment box with various amusing comments.
One of the users wrote, “Look how close YOU are to him. If you cant handle what is going to be in Florida waters then dont get in them. That gator was calm. He didnt try to attack you. And now he will be euthanized because of YOUR incompetence.”
“When did he try to attack you? He was just hanging out,” another asked.
A user commented, “That gator is minding its own business and you need to be fined”
