    Police Officers In Trouble After Wrestling Alligator

    Video doesn't show much, but it seemed like they were keeping a distance. What are you supposed to do with a gator?

    Police Officers In Trouble After Wrestling Alligator

    ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -- Two police officers were ordered to attend counseling sessions after wrestling an alligator at a Seminole County apartment complex.

    The Altamonte Springs police officers may have taken unnecessary risks when they captured the reptile at Lotus Landing Apartments, officials said.

    The officers captured the 8-foot alligator by themselves, and a police supervisor said they should have called for assistance.

    Casey Dillard said the alligator was near his apartment when he came home from work and wouldn't leave. Dillard called authorities, and the two police officers decided to take capture the reptile.

    Officials at the Altamonte Springs Police Department said they weren't happy with the decision and ordered the officers to attend counseling.

    "It's one-on-one counseling by their supervisor to talk about the incident and a different way they could have handled it," Altamonte Springs Police Department spokeswoman Karen Stesen-Reuter said.

    Both officers said they felt like they were doing the right thing and were concerned for the residents because at one point the gator was trying to climb some stairs and was on the back patio of one of the apartments.

    "Ahhhhh, gator!" Bang. 10-8.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    Then not only would you have the counseling, you'd probably have PITA, er, PETA on your back as well.

    It is total BS that they were told they should have waited they handled the problem. I have caught plenty of gators and don't see the reason to leave the problem there until someone else comes to fixit.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    Ooh, that's right. And maybe even enough left over for a pair of shoes for someone in New Jersey.

    we call the alligator guy here lol
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    If you're going to ding them, fine.

    But why frigging publish it in the news? Just STFU, ding them, and give the press a "No comment" if they come sniffing around.

    I think they did a good job, got a top jaw rope on the gator put the rope around a tree to imobilize it they didn't get hurt, the boot leather source didn't get hurt and most important voting citizens didn't get hurt, Good job give them a commendation and an extra half hour 10-7 and call it even.
