Overkill Vs. Underkill

July 15, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

As further evidence that reptiles of all sorts are migrating west and north from the non-petting zoo that we call south Florida, two boys attempted to kill an alligator in Jasper County, Indiana with a bow and arrow (they were spearing frogs). Unsuccessful, they returned with a 120-gauge [sic] shotgun, and dispatched the creature. I’m guessing both kids grabbed hold of the gun at the same time and backed up against a large tree before pulling the trigger.
Meanwhile, a shark takes his revenge on a spear-fisher who figured one good head shot would scare the beast away from his clients.
Apparently it is not a good week for people with pointy sticks.
