BIG Alligator in the Neighborhood
I looked out the window one afternoon, a few months ago, and saw this guy laying in the yard across the street. His tail was still in the road. I went out as far as the deck to stand and watch as a crowd gathered. One man had his son hold a measuring tape at the tip of the gator's tail while he measured it. I think that was just plain dumb. :-) It was 14 1/2 feet long. After a few minutes it stood up and walked a few steps before dropping back down on the grass. A few seconds more and he walked on past the house and into a lake at the Dunes Golf Course.
