An alligator should be the last thing you need to worry about while fishing in Michigan.
A man was collecting bait minnows in Tuscola County, Michigan when he heard a hissing sound behind him. At first he thought it was a opossum or a snake, but when he turned around he found a 6 foot alligator. The man was carrying a pistol at the time which he used to shoot the alligator after it lunged at him.
The Tuscola County Sheriff’s office said the gator escaped from a nearby exotic animal sanctuary. Encountering alligators in the wild is becoming a more common occurrence in Michigan. There have already been six incidents this year in the state.
At least we don’t have monsters like these in the Mitten
