A 2 foot long alligator escaped from his pen, waddled down to the Allegheny river and swam downstream, where a group of friends spotted him among the weeds growing on the bank of the river.
" Nicki Hilliard, of Tarentum, said she saw the alligator and shouted to her friends before she took off after it. 'She was brave enough to grab his mouth,' said Hamm's mother, Ruth. 'She said she'd seen 'Crocodile Hunter' and knew you had to keep its mouth shut.'"
I guess I owe the crocodile hunter an apology after calling him an irritating Australian prick yesterday. Even though my opinion about him being an irritating prick stays the same, maybe he does have a reason for existing.
