Gator greets students during student drop-off at Lexington Middle School in Fort Myers


FORT MYERS, Fla. — Students at Lexington Middle School in Fort Myers received quite the greeting Wednesday morning!

A massive 7-foot alligator unexpectedly showed up on the student drop-off line. 

SRO K9 handler Dave Jennings, a former gator trapper, wrangled the visitor. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took the gator, and it will be relocated to a safe area. 

Anyone with concerns about a gator should call FWC’s toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286).
