This is the terrifying moment a Florida woman is chased by an aggressive alligator while on an otherwise peaceful paddleboard trip.
Vicki Reamy Baker posted several videos and photos to her Facebook account on Wednesday, showing her frantic attempts to paddle away from the predator before using her paddle to push the alligator away.
'What are you doing?! Get away from me!' Baker yelled as it continued to swim towards her.
'Oh, s***! Oh my God!' she exclaimed as the gator hissed after she pushed the animal away with her paddle.
'Someone has been feeding this one and made him very dangerous. He tried to bite my board,' Baker captioned the Facebook video, which has been viewed nearly 300,000 times as of Friday.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Baker becomes increasingly concerned as the gator continues to aggressively pursue her.
'Why are you messing with me?' she asks. 'Why are you trying to BITE me? What the heck, man!'
'Look how close he is to me. He tried to bite me and my paddleboard,' Baker exclaimed to someone off-camera.
'I've never had a gator come at me like that before.'
After Baker swats the alligator away using her paddle, a man off-camera can be heard saying: 'Ma'am, I would suggest backing up considering you just made him pretty mad.'
