    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The military guards and fortified gates that keep intruders out of Naval Air Station Jacksonville didn't stop an alligator from scaling a roadside fence Saturday morning.

    Christina Stewart stopped to film the gator claw its way up a fence before belly-flopping onto the grass and continuing on its way.

    Officials with NAS Jacksonville said they don't plan on removing the alligator from the base unless he poses a danger to residents.
