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.”

Alabama Woman Is Frightened After Zombie Teeth Get Stuck In Her Mouth

Anna Tew was planning to be a zombie for the haunting holiday and spent $3 on a pair of fake teeth for the costume. The zombie teeth attached to her regular chompers with adhesive, but she became unglued when she realized the fake teeth were stuck. It’s not Halloween yet, but one Alabama woman has already had the fright of her life. I was trying to remove them then because they were just tight,” Tew told WKRG TV. “They wouldn’t budge. I even took a pair of wire clippers and cut the tips off of those.” Tew couldn’t eat or drink because of the fake teeth but tried drinking hot coffee hoping the heat would loosen the glue. Spoiler alert: It didn’t work. I drooled hot coffee, I guess you could say,” she told McClatchy News. “They wouldn’t budge. I’m panicking. Of course I’d had a few panic attacks by this point. I tried to sleep, wasn’t no sleeping.”

In the morning, she attempted to get out of the sticky situation by making an emergency dental appointment. But the solution wasn’t quickly found. They really didn’t know what to do,” Tew told McClatchy. “They looked and pulled a little bit, and they were like, ‘Well, we’re going to have to use a saw or cut it off in sections or drill it off.’ Tew couldn’t be numbed during the appointment because the dentist feared her teeth might get pulled out by mistake. The dentist, Dr. John Murphy, told the station that the gums can sometimes cause something to adhere to the teeth and get stuck. “So he went in and picked and pulled and I squealed like a baby and they got them out,” she told WKRG TV. “I will never do it again,” she told the station. “I will never put anything like that again in my mouth.”  Tew’s teeth are back to their pre-zombie state, and she has learned a valuable, if scary, life lesson from the ordeal.
