When I posted the title I thought it might gain some attention, than again I realized it's Florida, there's always something wild going on! Between the fishing, scenary, beaches, over rated College football team (UF) and stories to keep you entertained.
Shark Found in Downtown Miami- Link
MIAMI - It's not clear how or when it was killed, but police were called to a downtown Miami street when a five-to-six-foot shark was found lying in the middle of it. News footage Tuesday night showed the dead animal in the street with police officers and cruisers nearby. Two TV stations reported that a pair of men had tried to sell the animal to at least three fish markets for around $10.
The men apparently carried the five or six-foot-long fish around on the city's Metromover downtown train, prompting calls to police. The men apparently carried the five or six-foot-long fish around on the city's Metromover downtown train, prompting calls to police.
Florida Man Saves Pet Dog From Alligator
A West Palm Beach, Florida man is out of the hospital after taking on an alligator with his bare hands. When a gator attacked his dog Mandy early Saturday morning, David risked his own life to free the captured canine. He pushed his thumb into the gator's eye to stun it, and then pried its jaws apart. His quick action saved the life of his dog, but left his hand mangled. "I had my hand in his mouth anyway so it was close, so I think he just caught me," said Grounds.
Despite the damage to his hand, Grounds expressed no regrets about saving his dog. However, he did admit he won't be taking his dog out without a leash again. That's a good idea according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. "This is the time of year when alligator's are most active, and we want to remind folks recreating near the Florida waters to just be cautious and remember that alligators are out there, they're a part of our wildlife and just be careful," said Gabriella Ferraro, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
