YAWN, It's Monday!
Here is yet another gator mount on display at the Central Alabama Farmers Cooperative
in Selma. These gators were caught during the 2011 West Central Alabama gator hunt,
and you can see them through August. Meanwhile, preparations are under way
for this year's hunt. Fifty tags are out, and the hunt runs for two weekends
Alabama became the first state to protect alligators back in 1938,
but the reptiles increased in numbers enough that regulated,
small-scale hunts are needed to help manage their population.
P.S. This picture explains why I am not a river rat!
