Cautious golfers and deer give wide berth as massive alligator plays through

“Don’t mind me, I’m just making my way to the next water hazard.”

That seemed to be the goal of a massive alligator videotaped this week as it ambled across a South Carolina golf course, past an understandably concerned deer herd.

Alligator described as ‘Sherman tank’ ambles across fairway in video screen grab

CBS News put words to a YouTube video uploaded Thursday, stating, “The animals actually coexisted peacefully, but onlookers couldn’t believe their eyes.”

On Friday, Ocean Creek Golf Course at Fripp Island posted the same footage to Facebook, describing the gator as a “Sherman tank enjoying a nice afternoon stroll across hole #4.”

Astonished golfers can be heard chatting in the Facebook video.  Presumably, they spent the rest of their outing trying harder to avoid water hazards.
