The elderly woman refused to be a victim.

First, a clarification: The woman had the shovel, not the alligator.

That would have been odd. Now, back to the story.

Florida woman is not to be trifled with, under any circumstances. She will brain a gator with little to no provocation.

That was proven recently when a 74-year-old woman was attacked as she was gardening. According to the Miami Herald, the Naples woman said the gator bit her while she was tending to her plants.

The alligator, which measured approximately 7-feet-long, bit the woman’s leg viscously (like they do). The animal then dragged the woman to a nearby canal.

As the woman was being dragged, she hit the gator repeatedly over the head with a shovel she had been using in her garden. After about 20 to 30 blows to the head with the shovel, the beast finally let go, sparing the woman’s life.

A passerby helped the woman by giving her a towel to control the blood loss until emergency crews arrived. The victim was treated on-site, then taken to the hospital.

No further details on her condition are known. Florida Fish and Wildlife say the alligator was captured by a trapper later that night.


Notable Celebrity Deaths in 2021

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
