Wow! This was quite a bit of excitement and an adrenaline rush for me! I even briefly entertained the thought of possibly beginning a new vocation now that I'm 50 and probably halfway through my life. Or, at the very least, become an alligator catcher groupie!The alligator measured 9 ft long, had a piece of tail missing and a hole in his snout from battles fought and won-I guess! The catchers told us there might be more on our property-we should keep our hands in our pockets! I was considerably concerned for my cats. They played a lot in that part of the pasture. Hummingbirds, large spiders, snakes, deer, and alligators...And that is life in Old Miakka!
