Hope Mills, N.C. — Wildlife officers on Tuesday captured an alligator that has been swimming in Hope Mills Lake for the past two weeks.
Though even gators, it seems, have the sense God gave a dog:
“He was a wild gator. He was moving and evading us pretty good,” Lt. Brent Spivey of the Wildlife Resources Commission said.
And while I typically rail against Democrats, you have to give ’em credit for their wiley ways:
“We tried several techniques that didn’t work. So we decided to try to snag him with a small hook,” wildlife biologist Tom Padgett said.
Thank God for government.
