A sharp-eyed visitor claims to have spotted two alligators lurking in a lake at his holiday park.This guy’s going for the gold! Not one out-of-place animal, but two!
Park manager Dave Potter, 58, told The Sun: 'It has caused quite a stir.‘Had a good look’..?
'We have 90 plots for caravans and lodges, so there are a lot of people here.
'The police had a good look around but didn't find anything.'
Did they send down divers? I’ve seen ‘Lake Placid’. I know how that turns out!
Alligator expert Dr Laura Brandt said it was possible the alligators had been released or found their way to the water.Wow, she’s a great alligator expert, isn’t she? I totally didn’t know that!
She warned: 'They will eat anything that moves.'
Mind you, if spotted again, the police would be wise not to bring in armed units:
They don't get many alligators in the suburbs of land-locked Kansas City, but if and when they do the local police like to think they can handle it.Congrats! You shot…a concrete lawn ornament. Twice!
Officers responding to a rare sighting in the suburb of Independence, Missouri, left nothing to chance.
Seeing the alligator's head lurking menacingly in the weeds leading down to a pond they fired off one shot with perfect precision.
Noting that the beast hadn't moved, they fired again.
A Independence police spokesman said, in defence of the officers, it was growing dark when the incident occurred.Fantastic excuse! ‘We fired off two shots at a lawn ornament because we couldn’t see it properly’.
Do you feel a lot safer now, citizens of Independence..?
