Gator on the Loose
The wranglers did their best to corral and capture the critter, but the gator was uncooperative. Armed with only courage, a pole noose and duct tape, the wranglers were no match for the wild gator. After it snapped at a leg, the wranglers had enough. Authorization was given, and the animal was shot.
There is frequent speculation on gun forums over what is the "best" caliber for bears, zombies.......or gators. I can say unequivocably that .45 ACP hardball works fine on eight and a half foot gators, assuming the shot placement is good. The problem is getting the critter to hold still, and aligning the sights at night, exactly where the wrangler is telling you to shoot. This is a case where I would agree that a laser sight would be advantageous.
