South Carolina Rep. Wendell Gilliard had his road to the beach blocked Sunday afternoon by a huge gator who was in no hurry to cross a South Carolina highway.
"Saw this [Sunday] coming from Myrtle Beach", said Gilliard told WCBD in Charleston, S.C. “We decided to go to Sandy Island boat landing to take in the view - while leaving the dock area we encountered something rare.'
The video shows Gilliard's vehicle approach a large gator in the opposite lane, and in no apparent rush to cross the road.
Gilliard added, "I see why the people on Sandy Island need a ferry boat instead of having to use only small boats to go on and off the island.”
