For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
Not my words of course, but those of Romans 13:4 in the Holy Bible.
Why am I quoting scripture, you ask? Well, a passage about revenge surely relates to this video of an alligator going for a guy who attempted to yank it onto land by its tail.
Does it not? Do you disagree? Tweet me right here and see what I do about it.
Anyway, watch this person play with fire:
Apparently this was for the benefit of a documentary. I guess it’s gonna be called How To Be An Idiot, am I right? Damn, each time I see this I just wanna slam dunk the mistreatment of animals like there’s no tomorrow.
No, but seriously, leave the ‘gators alone guys. They go through enough as it is.
Alligators will inhabit swamps, tidal marshes, creeks, rivers, canals, ponds, lakes, and reservoirs. Like beavers, they’ll use their snouts, forefeet, and tails to burrow ‘gator holes’ that fill with water and can be the size of backyard swimming pools.
To survive subfreezing temperatures, these crafty animals move to shallow water, stick their nostrils above the surface, and let their snouts become frozen into the ice.
Mother crocodiles and alligators are very protective of their babies, and hatchling alligators generally stay together in a ‘pod for one to three years.
Alligators communicate with a variety of sounds, including coughing, hissing, distress yelps, hatching calls, bellowing, and vocalisations that are not audible to humans and that can travel very long distances.
Sadly, a lot of them are often kept in filthy, crowded tanks on alligator ‘farms’ before being clubbed and skinned alive.
There are few laws to protect reptiles from abuse, and those that do exist are often not enforced. For example, although animals such as anacondas and crocodiles are covered by Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) regulations, it’s estimated, for every animal who’s legally killed for the exotic skins trade, another will be illegally poached.
In the United States, reptiles are excluded from the meager protections afforded by the Animal Welfare Act. In addition to being cruel, this industry is hugely wasteful. It can take the skins of four crocodiles to make a single bag.
Sorry for the 180 there people, but you gotta spread the word whenever you can.
