VIDEO: Man Jump Into The Alligator Exhibit At Busch Gardens
I absolutely love being an ambassador for Busch Gardens. They give guests amazing experiences through out the year with different events, concerts, great food, thrilling rides and of course all of the different animals. I’ve been there countless times and never seen anything like this. On Wednesday a man jumped into the alligator enclosure! He did his best Steve Irwin impression saying, “Another wild Karen, crikey” after a woman yelled it’s very dangerous.
I think you should know better, but there’s two fences with multiple signs indicating it’s a restricted area.

Nick Reid says the guy was roughly 5 feet away from an alligator before getting back on the other side.

In a statement to FOX 13 Busch Gardens said, “We will not tolerate this blatant disregard of our safety rules and are working with law enforcement on this matter. The safety and well-being of our guests, ambassadors, and animals remains a top priority.” They also added that security and animal care teams responded immediately and no people or animals were injured during the incident.
