WATCH: Large alligator strolls through Circle B Bar Reserve

Polk County

A woman hiking in the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland captured video of her close encounter with a massive alligator.

Aryca Owens, a second grade teacher, said she visited the reserve with her students last year and decided to go back Sunday with her husband. 

“Today while hiking at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland a huge alligator walked across our path,” Owens told News Channel. “We saw a ton more alligators today and many beautiful birds. It has very scenic trails.” 

Owens said she looks forward to revisiting the park and wanted to share the video ” so the community can be aware of how beautiful nature is right in Lakeland.”
