Alligator Rings Doorbell: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Neighbors of a South Carolina home captured video of an alligator climbing on the front door as if it was attempting to ring the doorbell.

Danielle Barkley posted a video to Facebook showing the alligator climbing on the door of a Moncks Corner home Monday morning and appearing as if it was attempting to ring the doorbell and peer into a window."


In Florida folks may invite alligators into their living room to ride out a thunderstorm, and allow them to wade in their swimming pools.

However it`s unusual for a gator in South Carolina to exhibit such brazen behavior, but I guess it`s better to discover that it`s an alligator ringing your doorbell and not a Jehovah`s Witness.

What`s the proper etiquette when a gator rings your doorbell?

Ignore him!

Pretend he`s a JW and yell obscenities!

Call animal control!

I hope I`m never faced with this dilemma
