Outrage: Cruel Child Captures And Drags 6-Foot Alligator Home!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Animal authorities in Florida said a 10-year-old boy who hooked a 6-foot alligator while fishing wrestled with the reptile and dragged it to his home.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers said Michael Dasher of Rockledge was fishing with friends Wednesday at a canal near Green Road and Fiske Boulevard when he hooked a 6-foot alligator, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Thursday."

This dangerous beast should have been put out of its misery, I`m talking about the brat not the alligator.

Dasher inflicted immense pain and torment on the poor creature, how would the kid like to be dragged home with a hook stuck in his mouth?

Wildlife officials told the child that he would have been arrested on a felony charge of animal cruelty had he been older. This stern warning isn`t enough, I hope that the kid`s father beat him upside the head with a pair of alligator shoes.

The alligator survived his ordeal, and he will be released back into the wild.
