What impresses me most is that he did it while wearing slides.

Gotta admit, that was not the ending I was anticipating.

Trapping and killing:
It's a third-degree felony under Florida law to kill or injure an alligator. It's also a felony to capture and keep an alligator or its eggs unless you purchase a special alligator trapping or farming license from the state.

Aaaaaand now what are you going to do with it, Billy Bob?

I bet on Florida man with the garbage can.  Pay me!
 
2021-09-29 8:54:42 AM  
Florida man never wins. I'd be shocked if a Florida man was not in jail or worse.
 
2021-09-29 8:55:01 AM  
Enjoy your jail time!

Disappointed the gator lost.

If Florida Man is involved probably only Darwin.
 
2021-09-29 8:58:44 AM  
Trapping a gator is perfectly legal, folks. There's nothing in the video that even hints that the gator was either killed or kept.  Y'all all need to chill the fark out.

What if if you put them down your pants for gambling porpoises?

Boy, won't the garbage man be surprised?

Kind of reminds me of trying to get my cat in her carrier so I can take her to the vet...

Secret hint: take the top off of the carrier. It's so much easier that way.

This is basically the only matchup where I'd even consider picking Florida Man

Well, what is the amount, and type, of explosive(s) in the garbage can?

I'm a bit disappointed.

But I already got some clubbing baby seals to hang out with the gambling porpoises.

Ditto. I also expected men standing around coaching with beers (probably cans) in their hands, and the women all yelling they are a bunch of idiots and they were going to call 911 themselves if the guys didn't stop this nonsense and come inside.

wooden_rooster: Aaaaaand now what are you going to do with it, Billy Bob?


Relocation. Worst I dealt with was trash pandas getting into the garbage. I could trap them in the cans like this with the flip lid and then drive them somewhere miles away to dump them out.

Nah, if she even sees the carrier she goes nuts.  I have to really plan ahead for a trip to the vet.

I would not like to be doing garbage pickup for his route this week.

This isn't the Alligator Loki/Captain America battle I was looking for.

I recon the gator gets f*cked.

/proper f*cked

The trick is not to let her see it.

As for how to do that, I leave it up to you.

I fully acknowledge that capturing a cat is not something I want to do.

Once watched an ass standing over a caged trash panda talking for about half an hour, pointing at features, telling a much smarter guy all about raccoon biology and behavior. My uncle and I watching from far away, laughing at what we knew would happen. And it did. Smart guy walks away, ass releases the raccoon, which immediately ran out, turned, and attacked him.

Killjoy.

I thought he did that rather cleverly.

When I capture them in the can we put the can in the back of a pickup. Someone else drives down the road and I pitch the can over the back of the truck onto the road so the lid flips open, the trash panda is free to run away somewhere, and we'll be back shortly to pick the can up after the trash panda is gone.

When you flip the lid open, yeah, they kinda do look like that.

But more offended, like anyone would be when interrupted for their meal
 
2021-09-29 9:44:53 AM  
We all do.
 
2021-09-29 9:45:21 AM

"Oh, you have a gator eating your dog? Weeeeell...we might be able to get out there....say, a week from Thursday? Lot of our guys are out sick....you know....COVID....so we're a bit short staffed at the moment"

Here in MA, you're not allowed to molest the wildlife in any way. Canada Geese...protected, trash pandas? Protected. F*cking deer? Protected except during hunting season (hunters welcome!).

Why do so many Farkers insist on using unknown acronyms for things that are not common knowledge????

It's so frustrating to have to do research as to what you are referencing just to understand your likely bland and uninspired comment means just for you to save yourself typing out the 10-20 characters of text that would fully explain what your reference means.

The Do Not Resuscitate usually does it for free.

That's the best sense I can make of your laziness....

Department of Natural Resources. Just because you don't possess common knowledge doesn't mean others don't as well.

"capture and keep"

I doubt he kept it.

/pretty sure that was the intent of that particular language but I'm not digging through the legislative history just to be right on the Internet.
