Reptilian trifecta in play?

Works for me. Well done, subby. I take back some of the things I said about you.

Now that's a callback.  When is the last time we had a foot washing up on the beach in BC story?

FTA - "We want to know how it entered the country, they are no native to Ontario," he said.
I didn't know that, I thought all the alligator attacks in Canada were hushed up, what with Canadians being polite, and not wanting to upset the status quo and all.

We've had a few stories submitted, but no-one could get a toe-hold.


Also, awesome headline.

I'm looking over
My dead croc Rover
I hit with the power mower;

One leg is missing,
The other is gone,
The third one is scattered
All over the lawn.

No use explaining
The one remaining
It's spinning on the carport floor.

Yes I'm looking over
My dead croc Rover
I hit with the power mower!

Yay Subby!  Great headline.

That's a long way from home. The Rocky Mountain Crocodile, in addition to being the only crocodile native to the Western Hemisphere, is found only in streams and rivers of the Rocky Mountain front range stretching from the Great Basin area of the United States to Northern British Columbia. They are rare across their range, but have surprised more than a few Banff tourists over the years.

Good job, subby. You're on the side of the angels.

Very good, subby.  Very good!

Why did the alligator cross the road?

It was stalking the chicken. (bada-boom! bada-bing!)


This article has some great comic touches thanks to official deadpan delivery.

One: " ... a person has called in to report his alligator missing," he said.
That alone is very unusual. You almost never have anybody claim ownership of an out-of-place mysterious animal such as an Alien Big Cat.

In Canada, however, people are more honest and trusting and fewer things are illegal. I remember reading about a wallabee that escaped near here. Sadly it froze to death in a field before it could be returned to its owner. In Austria, kangaroos die on the roads all the time but nobody claims them.

Also, I read about a young lion that was seized by the police not far from here. You should have seen the picture of the cops with the lion. It was the high light of their careers. You could tell by looking at them that nothing as exciting had ever happened or was likely to happen in their lives.

Two, "Right now, in the City of Thorold, you can actually own an alligator," he said.Well, that explains it. I think maybe it would be best if exotic animals were legal but had to have tracking tags to identify their owners. They could bring back the old rural office of the "pig reeve", an official responsible for inspecting damage done by roaming livestock and assessing damages. Or give the job to wildlife officers. No, that wouldn't work, forget it.

Three, "We want to know how it entered the country, they are no native to Ontario," he said. Yeah, I'll tell you how it entered Canada: strapped to a fat bastard or in a suitcase with 200 other small reptiles, half of them dead.

Could have been totally legal, of course, but the exotic animal trade is often rather shifty. In the case of alligators, however, they are mostly legal and there are plenty of alligator farms raising them for pets, food, leather, etc. So the animal may have been totally legal from hatching in a Florida roadside attraction or an alligator farm in Latin America.
