As long as I have lived in Florida, I have never had an encounter with a wild animal. I have only seen them on Television and my college campus. Thankfully I only ever seen them on campus while looking through a window. Florida Gulf Coast University is the college I attended in Fort Myers. There were always sightings of alligators and bears. They even had a sign on camps that said “No Molestar The Alligators.” People disobeyed the sign obviously because alligators were always walking around campus. That’s usually because people are feeding them.
Recently in in Lutz, a black bear was spotted roaming through one of the neighborhoods. Do you live in Lutz or anywhere in the Tampa Bay Area and have spotted a wild animal? Feel free to email me Babs@wild941.com. I want to see some footage. Just want to see and hopefully I never encounter. Below is the video footage curtesy of the Tampalatest Instagram Page.
