    Brazilian woman finds alligator behind sofa

    BBC News - Brazilian woman finds alligator behind sofa

    A woman in Brazil was shocked to find an alligator hiding behind her sofa after heavy rains flooded her house in the town of Parauapebas, in Para state.

    She said she was alerted to the reptile's presence by her three-year-old son, who was patting its head.

    The woman snatched the child away and called the fire brigade, who trapped the 1.5m-long (5ft) alligator.

    The firefighters said the family was lucky the reptile was not hungry.

    Firefighter Captain Luiz Claudio Farias said it could have seriously hurt or even killed the boy.

    Capt Farias said it was not uncommon for animals such as alligators and snakes to enter people's houses in towns such as Parauapebas which are built very near rivers and the rainforest.

    He said the reptile had been released in a less populated area of the town.
    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

    Patting its head? Dang. Imagine what must have been going through the gator's mind. I'm sort of thinking of a Gary Larson comic strip, here.

    Not a true alligator; the two species of true alligators are found only in the US and in China. Crocodile or caiman, not that that would matter much if it decided to snack on the little boy...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
