Visitors who harass wildlife in the Everglades can be fined up to $5,000
A group of tourists hoping to get some up-close drone footage of an alligator in the Florida Everglades got quite the smoke show instead.
FlKeysNews.com reports that the tourists were trying to film an alligator known as “George” when it chomped down on the drone and ended up with a mouth full of smoke.
A now viral TikTok video shows the gator jump out of the water and grab the drone. As it bites down on the drone, the gator’s mouth fills with smoke. The smoke plume grows larger and larger until you can no longer see the alligator.
“Oh my God, don’t eat that,” a woman is heard saying in the video. “George no, no.”
