7-foot gator found roaming post office lobby in Florida

SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) — A 7-foot alligator was found inside a Florida Post Office.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post the gator was found at the US Post Office facility at 8501 Philatelic Road in Spring Hill.

Sheriff’s officials said someone stopped by the post office about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday to drop off a package and saw the 7-foot gator roaming around the lobby. The building has automatic double doors that allow off-hours entry, officials said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considers an alligator a “nuisance” animal if it is four feet or longer and deemed a threat to people, pets, or property, The Associated Press reports.

Florida has an alligator hotline for just these types of situations: 866-392-4286.
