Those things are not easily provoked. Are you sure his arm just didn't fall off?

Or as I said on CNN---the Swamp Men did nothing. You don't swim in Florida fresh water especially when seeing slides everywhere..

Hahahahaha I don't think the alligator wanted to do him. However I am now craving alligator tail to EAT. LOL

So, it will grow back on it's own?

From TFA:

"The gator was coming after him. On top of the water, as fast as he could pedal."
Of course, the alligator got him: it was pedaling a bicycle. If it had had to paddle through the water, he might have gotten away.

Was the gator nicknamed Fred too?
And now Fred's biting, Fred's biting, Fred's biting Fred.

Tee-Hee: There are two ways to disable an crocodile, you know.

James Bond: I don't suppose you'd care to share that information with me.

Tee-Hee: One way is to take a pencil, and jam it into the pressure hole behind his eye.

James Bond: And the other?

Tee-Hee: Oh the other's twice as simple. You just put your hand in his mouth and pull his teeth out!

Rebecca Langdale credits her brother's affinity for watching alligator-themed reality shows with him only losing his arm: "I thank God, you know." Apparently, this doofus family spends too much time watching Swamp Men and River Monsters and Hillbilly Hand Fishing when they're not watching the 700 Club.

Eeek: Those things are not easily provoked.


During mating season, you don't need to provoke them - they'll provoke themselves.

Fighting off a gator? Wow, that (almost) takes balls.
 
2012-07-10 03:44:43 PM  
From the article:
"He knows if he offers (the gator) his arm, he won't take his torso. He was smart, he took the risk," another of Fred's friends, Matthew Baker, told WINK.

I don't think that word means what you think it means.

On a hot summer night - would you offer your arm to the gator with the red roses?
Will he offer me his mouth?
Yes.
Will he offer me his teeth?
Yes.
Wlll he offer me his jaws?
Yes.
Will he offer me his hunger?
Yes.
Again, will he offer me his hunger?
Yes.
And will he starve without me?
Yes.
And does he love me?
Yes.
Yes.

I bet you say that to all the boys.

Authorities say Kaleb Langdale, 17, also known as 'Fred,' 'Lefty', was swimming with friends in the Caloosahatchee River Monday in Moore Haven when the gator suddenly attacked.

The article says the kid will be the first one back in the water. Won't he be swimming in circles?

Snark aside, I thought about if a gator was coming at me and I knew to "offer an arm" to save getting killed, and it took me a few seconds to decide which arm it would be. I guess left.
 
2012-07-10 04:28:25 PM  
Yeah. tournament down in Florida. I hooked my ball in the rough down by the lake. Damned alligator just popped up, cut me down on my prime. He got me, but I tore one of that bastard's eyes out though.

too bad you lost your jackin' arm, Lefty.

Who in the hell is stupid enough to EVER swim in Florida freshwater? I mean really, it does not take an 8th grade edumacation to know that gators are freaking everywhere and they find pretty much everything tasty.
 
2012-07-10 10:13:44 PM  
Friends say it won't stop them from enjoying the water, especially not Langdale. "Especially not Fred," Beck said. "He'll be the first person back in."

I hope to god the state never licenses this kid to drive or operate machinery or.. well, do anything but pick his freaking nose, because clearly he is entirely too stupid to be trusted to have even a modicum of good judgement.

I had an alligator rush me from out of a pond in South Carolina once. There is no farking way I would swim around them in freshwater after that.

When you are in the home of hungry, wild animals... You are considered to be crunchy and delicious!
