    Range critter

    A while back I posted this picture of a sign near one of the ranges down here in Miami.


    One of the critters came out to play today. My wife saw it and she pointed out to me. I approached the canal and the creature was kind enough to get close for good pics. There is another one bigger but I am guessing he was taking a nap or something.

    'cause Florida Fish and Wildlife gets quite miffed if you play with gators and they get downright nasty when you think Payless Shoes with the critters.

    Wink that reminds me of a joke....

    A young blonde woman was driving through the Florida Everglades while
    on vacation.

    She wanted to take home a pair of genuine alligator shoes in
    the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the
    local vendors were asking.

    After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one of the
    shopkeepers, the young Blonde declared, 'Well then, maybe I'll just
    go out and catch my own alligator and get a pair of shoes for free!'

    The shopkeeper said with a sly smile, 'Well little lady, why
    don't you go on and give it a try?

    The blonde headed off to the swamp, determined to catch an
    alligator.

    Later in the day, as the shopkeeper is driving home, he spots
    the same young woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun
    in hand.

    As he brings his car to a stop, he sees a huge 9-foot gator
    swimming rapidly toward her. With lightning reflexes, the Blonde
    takes aim, shoots the creature and hauls it up onto the slippery bank.

    Nearby were 7 more dead gators, all lying belly up. The
    shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent amazement.
    The blonde struggles mightily and manages to flip the gator onto its
    back.

    Rolling her eyes heavenward, she screams in frustration,

    Alligator actually makes for some good eatin'. Deep fried usually. Shark is my other favorite water scavenger to eat.
    Say....you reckon one round of 45acp would take that thing out?

    Yep...right between the eyes. They have a relativley small brain. Like anything else, you just have to know where to shoot.

    I know a guy in Mississippi that is a state certifed alligator remover. He has killed them with a .22.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I want to know what one has to do to become a state certified alligator remover; that would look sweet on my resume.
