Hey, kids! Did you know alligators have sharp teeth, too?

This must be the day for “dangerous animals meet dumb people” stories:

Authorities in Louisiana say a 6-foot alligator showed up at the front door of a Super 8 Motel outside Baton Rouge and bit a guest.


Matt Marszal, the motel’s front desk clerk, says the gator bit one of the motel guests who tried to catch it before Animal Control workers showed up.

The alligator was subdued by Animal Control in five minutes and taken away, while the would-be gator-wrangler wound up in the hospital. No word on if he still has all his limbs.

Guess this makes him qualified to run for governor.

    Obviously the trick to it is being smarter than a ‘gator, or a house plant maybe.

    Something similar happened between a woman and a hawk. The hawk crashed into a window, she tried to catch it…
