Soooo, you want to have a pet gator………………… MORON!

Take it from a guy who runs a blog The DaleyGATOR and a podcast called the

Alligators as pets is apparently a source of the problem. Alligators in Michigan? Sanctuary trains officers to catch them safely. – Chicago Tribune

Most of them are small alligators still living in aquariums in people’s homes. But sometimes calls come in for larger alligators spotted in ponds or creeks. In 2019, a man was collecting minnows in Tuscola County when a 5 to 6 foot alligator lunged at him from a ditch. The man drew his pistol and killed the animal.

What is wrong with fools who want “exotic pets”? Had a buddy years ago who had a “cool” new pet, an eastern diamondback rattlesnake. Yes they are awesome snakes, armed with deadly venom, huge fangs, which can deliver massive amounts of that deadly venom. Guess whose home I stopped dropping by……….YEP!

One thought on “Soooo, you want to have a pet gator………………… MORON!”

  1. I live in Michigan, and when I saw that they were training law enforcement officers and DNR and other’s who might come into contact with the huge reptiles in the line of duty, I was at first shocked. Then I stopped and thought about how half of the people who live here are about as dumb as a box of rocks, and figured that the need for such training comes in a close second to CPR. I mean, when I was in high school, for the most part, people had common sense. My dad, who quit school in 8th grade to help support his family, got a GED in the Army, and then never attended any further educational endeavors, was a pretty intelligent and well read man. He at least knew enough to come in out of the rain, and he served on the school board as well as him and my mom owned their own restaurant for over 30 years, making over 300 K gross a year, so he had to have some sort of intelligence, as he was actively involved with the running of the place.
    But now, even college educated young people from my old home town seem to be half brain dead, with no real desire to actually think for themselves, but just parrot what their professors and politicians have filled their heads with, even if it is obviously a bunch of crap. It is almost like it gives them identity, and they cling to it like a life preserver. No wonder America is failing in keeping up with the rest of the world in the area of education.
