The beast was either dull in the skull or wanted to take a bite out of crime when it latched on to the vehicle’s front bumper and wouldn’t let go, even after the Alachua County officer put the car in reverse. One moxie alligator decided to stand up to the long arm of the law near Gainesville, Fla., by going head to grill with a deputy’s squad car Sunday. Once it was dragged by its teeth several feet, it finally released its grip and was taken into custody by a trapper. Officials wouldn’t say if the beast would be relocated to the nearby state park from which they thought it came, but added that aggressive gators are usually harvested… a nice way a saying he might be looking good as a pair of boots soon.

I was in Florida that same day to set up my new lake home I purchased recently and got to meet a similar wildlife neighbor. By coincidence, “Al” I cleverly dubbed the almost 7-foot gator as he approached shoreline just off the screened-in pool in the backyard. There he sat for more than an hour eyeballing my three Chihuahuas that immediately signaled the alarm while on border patrol behind the screen. After listening to the Mexicans yap for much too long, I decided not so cleverly to take matters into my own hands and scare the gator away. Armed with a long-handled pool brush and wishing Steve Irwin were still alive, I nervously hit the ground several times with the brush as I walked toward Al. He didn’t move. I think I heard him laugh. Then, I backed off as the beast gave me what I presumed was the big stink eye. From behind, I heard one of my human neighbors, who had been observing my stupidity, say amusingly, “Proceed with caution… it’s mating season.”

American Airlines: An airline employee “inadvertently fell asleep” in the forward cargo hold of a plane, and remained there for the duration of a flight from Kansas City to Chicago. “The flight subsequently took off with the team member in the cargo hold, which was heated and pressurized,” American Airlines said in a statement. The individual, a male employee of Piedmont Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Airlines Group, was working an American Airlines flight on Oct. 27 when he apparently fell asleep in the forward cargo hold of a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The flight landed “safely” at the Chicago O’Hare International airport at approximately 7 a.m., when the employee was discovered upon arrival to the gate. A spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department (CPD) told HuffPost, The Piedmont employee, whose name wasn’t released, allegedly indicated to Chicago police that he had consumed “several alcoholic beverages.

“Our top priority is ensuring the well-being of the Piedmont employee,” the airline stated. “He did not request any medical attention upon arrival in Chicago, and we are grateful that he did not sustain any injuries.” CPD said they questioned the employee, identified as a 27-year-old man, at the airport before arrangements were made for him to return to Kansas City. American Airlines confirmed in an email to HuffPost that the individual is a ramp employee for Piedmont Airlines and that his job duties include “loading and unloading bags.” He was not injured and not charged in the incident, police say. At the time of the incident, the employee was staffing the forward cargo hold, which did not contain cargo for that flight since there were only 80 passengers of the 160 available seats present, American said. The American team is very concerned about this serious situation, and we are reviewing what transpired with our Piedmont and Kansas City colleagues,” the company stated.
