I Say... 7' Alligator In Town

Ralph Sulser asked me to attach this news article for your "chuckle". It was found in town less than a mile from his plant.

Re: 7' Alligator In Town

This bad boy was my fishing partner for a couple of hours last Saturday. He was about 2 feet shorter than my kayak and definitely made me nervous at times.

Re: 7' Alligator In Town

That is why I stay away from the water down here!

Last Monday, they (police dept.) ran a bear out of town. First sighting was by a couple of joggers jogging around their subdivision (their circlular street measures 2 miles, a favorite of walkers and joggers) and then by some kids out riding their bikes (my youngest son was with this group). The PD just followed the trail of phone calls til they located the bear and then just kept it moving to the city limits and the nearest woods.

Wasn't the Lake Placid of movie fame (or is that shame) in Maine?

I grew up in East Aurora, about 20 miles from Buffalo. We had plenty of bear in the woods around South Wales and Emory Park. I remember a very large brown bear strolling down the center of Olean Road. I can also remember, when I was a kid, they found some very large alligators in the sewers in Buffalo and took them to the Buffalo Zoo.

As you say, the most common event is "Bambi" intrusion. We have had plenty of them in the center of town. I remember a large buck jumping through the plate glass window of Seaman Hood and Morey on Main Street. (is that an ad? sorry!! I think they are out of business though).

Re: 7' Alligator In Town

"Seaman Hood and Morey on Main Street" OK, It's been a very long time since you're lived here. I asked my mother about Seaman Hood and Morey, she muttered something incomprehensible and walked off. I think it was something about "kids or back in my day..."

Lake Placid?? Good movie, great area, but 5 hours driving from here.
