Sensible Florida dad yells at son for filming massive fish-eating gator

Dad was not impressed with my National Geographic skills 🐊⛳️

If you see something like this on your next golf outing, you might want to play through, which is exactly what a wise, sensible Florida dad wanted to do last weekend.

On Sunday, May 14, David Mack filmed this hungry beast devouring a fish while playing a round of golf at Sandhill Crane Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens.

"Get your picture and get out of here, David," a voice can be heard on the video. Based on Mack's caption, we can safely assume that voice belongs to his sensible dad.

Just last week a 10-year-old girl was attacked by a nearly 9-foot gator while swimming in about a foot of water near Orlando.

Careful out there, folks.
