Alligator That Bit Off Elderly Woman's Arm Has Been Killed
Yesterday we told you about 84-year-old Carol Hough being found bleeding in a Lake County canal from an apparent alligator attack.
We also told you the alligator ripped her arm off. BECAUSE IF ARMS GET RIPPED OFF FROM TORSOS, IT LEADS ... er something.
Anyway, that alligator should've thought twice about being so alligatory, because now it's had its comeuppance and has been found and killed, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Suck it, alligator!
FFWCC spokeswoman Joy Hill says a seven-foot, five-inch alligator was found in the canal behind Hough's mobile home and put down.
Hill also claims that no body parts were found in the alligator's stomach. However, authorities do believe it's the same alligator anyway, because the one that attacked Hough was also 7-foot-5 and "it had no fear of humans."
And as you may or may not know, it's scientifically impossible for two or more alligators to be the same exact size and length. Also alligators are totally petrified of humans.
So there you go.
But, hey. Whatever. Alligator justice must be carried out. So watch out, alligators.
Doctors say Hough lost her right arm between the elbow and shoulder. Authorities aren't sure what she was doing in the canal in the first place. She remains hospitalized and in critical condition.
