When gators attack, in Central Texas April 27, 2007

Posted by daveintexas in Current Events, drama.

A co-worker friend of mine took this picture a few days ago.  Said he was driving home, and saw this huge snake in the middle of the road.

And then the huge snake got up on its legs and started running.

Even in Texas, this is considered very unusual behavior for a snake.


Don’t know where he came from.  Down by the lakes and swamps and stuff around Houston and Beaumont, they’re quite common.  Not so much here.  This morning I heard a report on WBAP AM 820 in Ft. Worth that a 4 foot gator was sighted and finally captured hanging out by a Costco.

Obviously an anti-competitive manuever by Wal*Mart

Gators are people too! Just like when you see a turtle in the road: pull over and help the little bugger cross over.

Well there’s another good reason to carry a firearm in many parts of the country.

Remember that female jogger last year that was killed by a big gator? I think that was Florida.

Hell, my friend didn’t even want to get close enough to take the picture.

Animal control people came and “rescued” him. Whatever that means.

Catch it, Dave. I can see a pair of boots in it for you.

Aw heck.

That gator’s barely big enough for a sammich.

mesa, that’s why they make Gator-Helper™ — to stretch that meal.
