VIDEO: Gator sneaks up on A/C tech during service call in Venice

VENICE, Fla. (WWSB) - Brian Sapp, who’s been an air-conditioning service technician for 20 years, had one of the strangest experiences of his career when he almost stepped on an alligator!

Brian was working at a home in Venice. When he arrived, he went to the front door to ring the doorbell. When he later turned to walk back to his van he almost ended up stepping on a gator that had sneaked up on him!

He took video of the gator while it was by the garage. The gator eventually walked around the house to head towards a lake.

Brian explains there is a lake behind the house and one across the street from the house. With it being gator mating season, they frequently travel between the lakes. But it’s a good thing he didn’t end up stepping on that gator!
