Inside The Florida Post Office, A Customer Discovers A 7-foot Alligator.


SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) — They say rain, snow, and darkness will not deter the US Postal Service, but an alligator might.

According to a sheriff's office Facebook post, this occurred at the Spring Hill Post Office in Hernando County, Florida.

Someone stopped by the post office around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday to drop off a package and noticed the 7-foot (2-meter) gator roaming around the lobby, according to sheriff's officials. The building has automatic double doors that allow off-hours entry, officials said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considers an alligator to be a "nuisance" if it is 4 feet or longer and poses a threat to people, pets, or property.

For these types of situations, Florida has an alligator hotline at 866-392-4286.
