Gator Breaks Into Woman's Home...

OLDSMAR – "A Pinellas County woman says she heard a noise in her home late Monday night and when she went to check it out, she discovered there was an alligator in her kitchen.

Deputies say 69-year-old Sandra Frosti couldn't believe her eyes when she saw the gator's head on her kitchen floor at about 10:30 p.m. on Monday. They say she called 911 and then immediately got out of the house until help arrived at her home on Evelyn Court in the Eastlake Woodlands area.

Investigators say the eight-foot gator apparently pushed through the screen on Frosti's back porch, went inside the house, through an open sliding glass door, and made its way to through the living room and into the kitchen. A trapper was called in to help capture the gator, though deputies do say the gator was slightly hurt when a plate fell on it as they were trapping it.

No one else was hurt."

This is why we train.

Oldsmar does not have a local Hogtown Irregular chapter, so residents are forced to, gasp, call the police for assistance and that means nobody should ever hurt poor widdle allie-gator and in a lot of instances people get nipped and bitten and tail-whipped while the environmental fella's tickle the beastie's chin.

An obviously well-fed gator of this size is faster than he looks and can take down a full grown man in a flash. Booger isn't allowing me the courtesy of posting a pic of the beast, but I'll try and get back to it.
