NEWS OF THE WEIRD

ONLY IN FLORIDUH

Posted

Calvin Rodriguez was arrested in Port St. Lucie in May as the man who'd been using a shaved key to steal cars from parking lots. His spree came to an abrupt halt as he sped away from police in a stolen Honda Civic, only to crash into a huge alligator in the road. On May 1, a wildlife trapper called to Pine View School in Osprey, south of Sarasota, removed four alligators (one of which was 8 feet long) from campus while classes were in session, undisrupted. Beachcombers in Redington Beach on the Gulf of Mexico were treated on May 17 to the sight of a full-grown elephant treading water about 20 yards offshore. The animal made its way to the water after being unloaded for a commercial birthday party appearance.
