Crack Addict Rescued from Jaws of Alligator

This story from south Florida has been all over the news today. My favorite headline was this one from a German news source:
Alligator Bites Naked Man on Crack
Two of the best accounts I’ve seen are here and here. Be sure to listen to the dramatic audio tape of the 911 call and watch the video showing the alligator being captured and loaded into a truck (both can be downloaded at the second link).

This poor guy is a prime candidate for a Darwin Award. It’s just too bad that this animal had to be destroyed because of the stupid actions of a human being.

I was holding my breath almost the whole time the called was looking for the guy who was screaming. I was like, "Dammit! Just go find him!"

Poor gator. I feel for them, because they didn't ask humans to come around and take up all of their feeding and nesting grounds. And I have to wonder who in their right mind would live in a place where gators live. And then bitch about them. It's like making a conscious decision to live in California and complaining about the earthquakes.
