Hugh: 80-Year Old Florida Man Wrangles 6.5ft Alligator in his Backyard
When an 80-year-old Florida man found an alligator in his backyard on Tuesday evening, he didn’t wait for the police to show up to help him wrangle the 6 1/2-foot animal. He just did it himself. According to UPI, Ed Chapman was alerted to the gator by his dog Rocco. He proceeded to grab a noose pole and looped it around the animal’s neck before it knocked him over with its tail. They then wrestled partially in a pond before Chapman got the reptile contained. It was only then that he called 9-1-1 for help removing it from his property. The Floridian said he collects venomous snakes and breeds wolves.
