Default You Louisiana boys crazy, feeding alligators

Just found this article. I knew Louisiana has some crazy ass coonasses, but I think this takes the cake or should I say, the marsh mellow.

Last week, in our yuppie neighborhood, a gator came out of a neighborhood pond and ate an 80lb dog, The dog was being walked, off leash, by a 10 yr old girl. Dog wandered up to the edge of the pond, and the rest is history. Too about three seconds for the gator to emerge and haul the dog under.

Needless to say, the child was real lucky.

Be careful of the "endangered" alligator. Every pond has one around here. A 10 yr old girl is about the same to a gator as a dog!!!! This gator (8' long) was captured "first cast" by the resources guy, and the bits and pieces of the dog were returned to the dog owners family. And some dumbasses "feed" the gators around here. Scheesch.

pretty small gators though. Bet he wouldn't do that with a 10+ footer. Those looked 5-6' tops. They make for a great fight on light fishing tackle.

How did he discover that he could swim with gators and get them to take food out of his mouth?

Joe Dirt: There are three rules when dealin' with a deadly alligator. And yes, they are deadly, don't kid yaself. Rule number one, I'm number one. Ya hear that, I like ta kid around. Rule two, the croc's number two. Now before I begin...
Kid at Gator Farm: Hey, what's rule three?
Joe Dirt: What's that? Kid, give me a break now.
Kid at Gator Farm: So you don't know rule three?
Joe Dirt: Yeah, you want a match? My face and your ass! How 'bout that friend? Huh? I mean, your ass and my face, what's up?
Joe Dirt: Here we go, I'm a bit of a crocophile, so don't try this at home. This here's Rocky, and he ain't no puppy. Now, let's see if Rocky's got some cavities.
[Joe opens Rocky's mouth]
Joe Dirt: This mofo knows not to mess with Sir Joseph Dirt.
[Joe puts his head inside Rocky's mouth, then screams as Rocky moves his head up and down thrashing Joe around]
Joe Dirt: [Rocky throws Joe out of his mouth as crowd laughs and cheers] Oh, when bad pets go bad, dang.
Joe Dirt: [Babbling nonsensically] It's like the cartoons, I'm seein' all "tweet tweet".
Charlene the Gator Farmer: Joe, what can I do fa you? Ya not makin' any sense.

This guy has to be related to the towel head tire changers!

Nuts doesn't even describe this. First off isn't this illegal, I know it is in Florida. This guy must have been feeding these things and swimming with them since they were babies. What's gonna happen when another one swims over? Guys days are numbered for sure.

This would be a bad place to kayak. Ask me how I know what it is like to kayak fish around a gator that has lost his fear of man.

Theres a big local river near me and theres also a park that rents kayaks. Now In the park area I pretty much never see gators, I have a feeling they move them or the gators stay away. My dad and I decided to fish down stream from a local boat ramp in our 10' john boat. The amount of gators we saw in a mile stretch was crazy and I would never kayak there. A 10' jon boat was undersize. Any given bend there was at least 8-10 hanging around, sitting on logs or on the bank, some were babies some were bigger than the boat.

And there was people in kayaks paddling around, I thought they were crazy.

I don't know about La. law but I think it would be against the law to feed the gators. Waiting for fash and wildlife to get hold of this clip and pay him a visit.
