DOG SURVIVES

More gator trouble in Florida, this time involving a golden retriever. Where is Florida Barbie when we need her?

(Via Florida Cracker, who observes: “Every time Al Gore gets on a plane, a polar bear drowns.”)

    1. He starts hitting the gator on the head? What was he trying to do, ensure that the dog’s head got guillotined off?

      The gator must have washed in from the arctic by some unseasonably cold weather caused by Chimpysmirk McHitlerCLimateChangeBurton</moonbat>

    1. Has it escaped the greenies that the biological name of the Polar Bear is Ursus Maritimus – i.e. a sea bear. Those things can swim for quite some distance.

    1. The Golden Retriever’s bad breath saved it, no doubt. Either that or it was shedding in the croc’s mouth.

      One of the two.

    1. The gator had the dog in his mouth and failed even to harm it – that’s pathetic.  I bet all the other gators in Florida are laughing at him now.

    1. Hmm. Perhaps the croc prefers the extra crunch from moonbats – heads empty and all that.

    1. I love animal stories. I bet the Border Collie ran to get help. And came back with Skippy. While Flipper was holding off the Canadians who had smelt blood.

    1. What was the Golden Retriever trying to retrieve anyhow?

      A pair of gator tonsils?

      That’s probably why he was hiding out so far from the Everglades in the first place – he’s a Gator-Nerd

    1. Florida alligators are pansies.

    1. Every time Al Gore gets on a plane, a polar bear drowns, there stands a chance that the plane will have a ‘bumpy’ landing.

    1. This gator wouldn’t last 20 seconds in the same ring with a saltie.

    1. So it’s a Florida alligator? Perhaps that’s the problem. The dog wasn’t kosher.

    1. The PETA legal staff is preparing their animal abuse lawsuit as we speak.  Nobody hits a poor defenseless gator, deprives it of food and walks away unscathed.

      That reminds me of an incident last year involving a friend of mine (an American working in Germany) who took his dog out for a walk along the wooded trails near his home.  Germany has strict leash laws (which evidently only apply to Americans) so my friend has his dog muzzled and on a leash (its a two year old lab). Along comes a nice German lady with her free roaming shepherd.  The shepherd begins mauling the lab, while my friend is yelling at the lady to get her dog and gets bit bad enough to require 20-some-odd stitches.  The woman explains that this is natural, its what dogs do.  A week or so pass, and my friend (with bandaged hand) finds himself facing the exact same scenario, but this time he releases his dog who promptly begins to tear the shepherd to shreds.  The woman is screaming for him to stop his dog.  You can imagine what he told her…

    1. Gator’s keep screwing around…there is this Act titled ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT OF 1973 that these creatures may find themselves on.

      OR

      There are always these OR these, which lead back to ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT OF 1973.

      Man, this thing is growing by leaps and bounds. I may need an armed guard, or better yet a bank account.

    1. Thats terrific news El Cid, looks like you can now upgrade to 10 cases of Falstaff (or 3 kegs of Hamms) Woo Hoo!

      Yeah, I’m tickled shitless…kinda’ brings a tear to my eye, too. Wait, wait…is that the other…nah, I typed it correctly…phew.

    1. My two elderly attack dachshunds (Sydney and Basil) would have this gator fresh for breakfast and then use its ribs for toothpicks. Then drink the 3 kegs of Hamms as a digestif.

    1. In fact I’m so emboldened now, I may try to find Paco, up the road in Va. AND shake him down ask him for a donation.

    1. On tonight’s news was an article about a croc on a golfcourse, in Queensland of course..
      o/t For the first time in Australia an aboriginal person _a 14 year old girl -has been charged with a racially motivated assault -in Kalgoorlie I think..
      There was no mention of the ethnic origins of the victim of the violence but it was a 19 year old woman.

      Nope, means they will eventually gravitate and acclimate to places like Indiana or Ohio…:).

      Yeah, I thought of that, but then carrying around all day…geez….lol.

    1. What are the Gaia worshippers going to do now that the “endangered species” of yore are proliferating into their back yards?  Florida Fish & Game admits the alligator numbers are back to normal but say all these attacks are just… coincidence.  In California you can’t leave a small dog, not to mention toddler, outside or a coyote will snatch it.

      And, I admit it, I hate possums.  Especially the one staring at me from the back yard.

    1. We have the same problem with snakes.

      When I was a kid, if you saw a snake, whamo, you divided it into two unequal halves with the aid of a shovel. It was considered a civic duty.

      So now they have been protected for forty years or more. So what has happened? The fuckers are everywhere.

      There’s a simple solution. Eat them. For thousands of years the aborigines did. Now they prefer KFC. Apparently it tastes a bit like snake only oily. Sure kept the fuckers in their place. The snakes I mean.

      So having had one of their few natural predators removed from the equation the fuckers have multiplied like out of fashion neckties in the back of a walk-in wardrobe. The kookas are laughing though.

      So I reckon we should rediscover the taste for snake. People should be licensed to hunt them. Skilled people. Indigenous people.

      They’ll have to fight the frogmen.

      Yes, unless they get stuck on all the drowned polar bears that have drifted south…

    1. The downside to living in Maine is the long winter.

      The upside is not having to worry about being jumped by a carnivorous dinosaur while I’m out jogging.

      No, they’ll just all get eaten by the mutant radioactive crocodiles that live next to the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant. Okay okay, maybe they aren’t radioactive mutants. Yet.

    1. Forget the Ohio River Frogmen.  In order to get to Ohio, the gators are going to have to go through Tennessee.  And we all know what’s waiting for ‘em there.  Talk about yer frogs.

      Koff, koff, splutter.
      He spat her out.

      Snakes protected? NIMBY.

      Janice, for you. I don’t much like them either, but at least they aren’t living in my roof. This one found itself stranded up a tree near the house.

    1. Not to mention the deadly snake fish, probably let loose by Chicom insurgents.

    1. Tim:

      Florida is expanding the gator hunt, this year. I’m thinking of applying for a license.  Care to join me?  (It’s a mere $62 for a non-resident, “add-on” license.)

    1. They’re actually culling the herd!  There’s hope for us after all.
