Naked Gator Man!!!!

When we moved to The Sunshine State in 2006, we couldn't believe the unbelievable stories we saw on the news. Every night we would say WTF??!!!!!!

One of the first and most memorable was Naked Gator Man. He was found by a lake with part of one arm missing, his other arm broken and numerous gator bites on his lower body. He was in the hospital recovering for two weeks.
He told police he had been attacked while walking along the lake. Naked. While smoking Crack.

Shortly after midnight this morning, Naked Gator Man.YES. SAME Naked Gator Man was found by police. Walking by the lake. Naked. 50 feet away from an approaching GATOR!!!!!

This is precisely why Carl Hiassen is a non-fiction writer.

Why, oh why, does he feel the need to be nekkid when near gators?

He's lucky it was only part of his arm that was missing.

No! That's the most insane news story I think I've EVER heard. I swear, some of those Southern folk... tell me he's a native...

I remember that guy! I live in New Port Richey, not too far from Lakeland. What a idiot!

When we first moved down here 8 years ago, our neighbor was awakened by thumping on the door in the middle of the night. When they looked out the window they saw a HUGE gator trying to eat their ceramic turtle and thumping his tale on their door. They didn't want to call animal rescue because they didn't want him hurt. WHAT???? Anyway we havn't seen him around here lately which is good.
