Kicker – A front-porch gator brawl

NICK EICHER, HOST: Starting your day with The World and Everything in It, now that’s a great start.

Here’s a not-great start.

GESHEL: Joe, they’re fighting! They’re fighting! They’re fighting! They just, he just, he just, uh, oh my, they’re fighting outside the door!

Susan Geshel of Ft. Myers, Florida, was on her way to the kitchen when she heard what she thought was a knock at the door.

But the doorbell camera caught the whole thing: two big alligators locked in mortal combat right outside the front door.

GESHEL: One just snapped at the other and got him right in the middle. Oh my!

Eventually, the ’gators made their way down the sidewalk, presumably to a nearby pond. 

But what a jolt… 

And all this before her morning coffee.

Doubt she needed any caffeine that day.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
