The city of Miami will begin trapping and relocating peacocks from one neighborhood after residents complained of slippery piles of poop, dive-bombing birds and screeching and squawking at all hours of the night.


Schizophrenic comment of a resident:

“They are a pest. They are noisy. They do poop. The poop is significant. And they are getting very aggressive over time,” Pat Tzakis, a resident of Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood, told the City Commission at a meeting this month. “When I moved into the neighborhood 25 years ago, they were mainly confined to 17th Avenue...now we have about 100 peacocks in our own neighborhood, which is small. They’re getting aggressive as they multiply. Please help us out in finding a solution for these magnificent creatures.”

That "drop-off" scenario seems very likely.  I hope the gator's okay; if he starts showing up late for work there may be a problem.

 

As the article notes, the gator was trapped, killed and cut open. Mr. Meth's foot and hand were found inside. Apparently the animal attacked the man's body after he'd died.

Who would drop off a tweaker in swamp? And why? 

I don't know if 450 pounds and 12 feet is big for a gator, but that's 450 pounds and 12 feet too much for me. Cannot stand beasts like that.
 
I knew the gator was dissected, I was just speculating - based on the stories of salt water crocodiles in northern Australia that use Mandrax to relax their prey.  I was guessing that Mr. Meth was dumped there after having the bad manners to die in someone's car/trailer/flop-house.  They may have thought it would be easier to drop him out in the glades than to try to explain a dead guy to the cops.  It is Florida after all.

well there's no way around the fact that it is a very large critter

they don't get much longer 14-15 feet maybe and that's probably rare

but they gain more girth and can get quite a bit heavier (esp males/bulls)

if you're ever in south florida try and make a trip to shark valley (winter is the best time)

rent a bike or take the tram on 15 mile loop through the glades

about halfway there's a tower you can go up into and see some whopper dinosaurs in the pond/lake

it's hard to judge just how big they are, but they're usually noticeably larger than most you'll see on the trail/loop

Florida man found eaten by alligator actually died from meth overdose, officials say


The Florida man who was found partially eaten by an alligator earlier this year died from a meth overdose — not a gator attack, as was speculated, according to autopsy results.

Was the alligator tweaking when it was found? Then again, it may have been a DEA gator
