KRIV Meteorologist Mike Iscovitz Encounters Alligator on His Way to Work

By Andrew Gauthier 

“I didn’t realize how big he was until he turned around and I really got a glimpse of how long his tail was,” said KRIV meteorologist Mike Iscovitz, referring to a 7-foot alligator he encountered on his way to work this week.

Iscovitz, who appears on the Houston Fox-affiliate’s morning newscast, captured video of the gator and the station used it as part of a larger segment covering alligator sightings in the Houston area (video above).

Iscovitz grew up in Florida so he’s accustomed to seeing gators, although he’s probably not used to those encounters showing up on the evening news.  [h/t NewsBlues]
