Josh Bryant got a brand new fishing rod for his 11th birthday. So he and his mother went to the local fishing pond to try it out—all of which is very sweet. But when, to their shock and horror, they saw alligator rear its head above the water, the celebration suddenly turned a little scary. And when other anglers and onlooker showed up, it got considerably worse. According to this Daily Inter Lake story, instead of just calling the authorities, they wanted to get the gator out of the water “so someone could come take care of it.” So these people proceeded to shoot the animal with an arrow and slit its throat. Nice. Little Josh should remember this birthday (in his nightmares) for a long time.
