When I was a kid with a Midwest newspaper route, I had to worry about huskies and German shepherds. Bobby Kish, who delivers The Mercury in Pottstown, Penn., faced off with an aggressive alligator Monday.
"He kind of lunged at me and hissed," Kish, 46, told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "His mouth was open; I was about five feet away. It was enough to get my attention."
P.S. The story has a happy ending. Cops caught the gator (duct tape to the rescue!) and the roamin' reptile will be taken to a reserve in Florida.
