Mailman avoids alligator

Local News

Postal service workers will do their job regardless of rain or snow or heat. Apparently, that does not include alligators.

A neighborhood in Winter Garden, Florida, has not received mail in two days. The reason?

According to neighbors and the U.S., the mail carrier is afraid of an alligator living in a pond close to where the mailboxes are.

In a statement, the U.S. Postal Service says it has guidelines in place to address threatening animals. Adding it expects regular mail delivery to resume.

Neighbors say it’s unclear what will happen to the gator, who has been a pond regular for years.
