Another way of looking at that gator

By now, you’ve probably heard about the big damn gator killed for taking cattle. Around 800 frickin’ pounds of tailmeat and boot makings.

15 foot gator caught in Okeechobee The 800lb creature was fatally shot in Okeechobee, Florida, on Saturday after terrorizing the cattle on a farm. Lee Lightsey, the owner of Outwest Farms in Okeechobee, and hunting guide, Blake Godwin, discovered the enormous animal in their cattle ponds on April 2. On Saturday the creature surfaced around 20ft from them, so they shot it. It was so big they had to use a tractor to drag it out. However, they were then able to use the vehicle to proudly show off their catch. They plan to donate the gator's meat to charity and have the alligator taxidermied for display at their hunting shows and expos

My sister — a nurse — noted:

“You know, I’ve had patients bigger than that gator.”


I told her she just needs a frontend loader like those guys.

    At least the ‘gator looks like it was healthy. I’ve cared for several morbidly obese patients, and they are truly miserable people.
