Although alligators have no interest in playing golf, they sure have a very strong fascination with golf courses. Maybe it’s because there’s lots of lush grass and water all around the greens. But alligators aren’t the only animals that take up residence on golfing greens.
In this funny video, a family of geese were not happy to see a big alligator wander onto the ninth hole where they had taken up residence.
Whereas golfers steered clear of the monster gator strolling on the green, the geese took it upon themselves to literally quack the big gator off the golf course during a charity golf tournament in South Florida, for Christie’s Critters, a nonprofit that works with pet rescue agencies.
The unusual sight was captured by Ryan Witkowski, who was playing in the tournament and was driving towards the hole when he noticed the geese not only chasing after, but also honking, at the alligator.
“Look at this! Oh my god! (Hole) number nine! PGA National!” says an incredulous Witkowski in the video. Another man can be heard saying in the background: “These birds (are) super-aggressive when they’ve got young ones” as the geese get closer to the gator.
Their quacking gets louder and louder and one of the feisty birds even seems to step on the gator’s tail!
The short clip concludes with the alligator fleeing, which goes to show, even gators know better than to mess with ducks.
