Alligator In Michigan

A Burr Oak man simply wanted to gather some sweet corn for the family freezer.
He didn't expect to have to deal with an alligator rushing at him.
Jeff Adamski was in a corn field on a recent evening when two women came running from a few rows over, screaming that they had seen an alligator.
He checked it out and sure enough, there it was.
Adamski tells the Sturgis Journal he "backed away," and the gator "darted at me." He then backed up faster, and the animal kept coming.
That's when Adamski says he decided to deal with the problem, considering what an alligator could do to a child if he let it go.
The newspaper reports Adamski grabbed a 4-foot bar out of his truck and killed the alligator.
Burr Oak is about 80 miles south of Grand Rapids.

    Thats what happens when you get an exotic pet, and it gets big, you turn it loose and then the rest of us have problems. I am sorry but I think it should be against the law to own gators, snakes, poisonous spiders etc. They are not native, and not everyone is a responsible owner.
