Note the stick, and something in the alligator's mouth. That piece of chicken is going to turn him into luggage.
Not the correct link. No such story on file.

And the "experts" say that animals have no sense of humor and can't POSSIBLY understand practical jokes!

Thank you linttrap

I was working with an Ex- south Australian Farmer here in WA in 2004, He said they had several sheets of corrugated iron lying flat in their chook yard and each morning the fifty 'ish' chooks would gather round, for them to be lifted, He (Ian) held the sheet until the chooks had killed all the mice and on to the next sheet. The chooks would kill up to 200 mice, each day if there were that many. mice plagues
More

Things ain't changed much-Birds and mice= Dinosaurs and Mammals

4 things which I intensely dislike- Mosquitos, Australian flies(many types of...), Cockroaches, and since 2004- Mice.
( had a mice 'overload'~wasn't a plague though - went through 2 kgs of talon mice bait in 10 days around our farmhouse. little bastards!)

Just hope that they never get infected with the TRUE plague, then. Yes, I mean Yersinia pestis -- the Black Death. Native California rodents around San Francisco picked it up about 100 years ago, they think from infected ships' rats from the Asia trade, and it's been endemic in the western US ever since.

My kind was here first so don't **** with me!


Published on Jan 3, 2017
At least 20 people were injured as a leopard, possibly from adjoining Bihar, entered Raiganj town of North Bengal and went berserk on Monday. The leopard had strayed into the village adjacent to Raigunj town in the morning. The villagers first understood there was some predator when they found two injured goats. The villagers then started searching and found a leopard.

He'll have the hump now! Incredible moment a camel BITES a farmer and swings him through the air

Ildam was telling a TV crew about camel breeding when the camel bit him
Farmer was stroking animal's head when it locked its jaws around his knee
He was swung through the air and was left needed hospital treatment

Mr Ildam was swung through the air by the angry camel. He was
badly injured enough to require hospital treatment
