Holy #@%* It’s A Deer!

November 2, 2010

This picture was taken by a helicopter flying over Lake Weiss , about 90 miles north of Birmingham , Alabama .
The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radio.  Here is a transcript of their conversation:

‘Air 1, have you a visual on the gator, over’.

‘Approaching inlet now, over’.

‘Gator sighted.  Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth.  Moving in, over’.

‘Roger Air 1’.

‘Holy Crap… it’s a Deer!’

‘Confirm, Air 1… did you say Deer?, over’.

‘Roger… a Deer in its mouth!  Looks like a full-sized buck. That’s a big gator; we are going to need more men,  over’.

‘Roger Air 1.  Can you give me an idea on the size of the animal?, over’.

‘It’s Big!  25 feet at least, please advise.


Now THAT is a big gator!

    OMG…One of those could be lurking anywhere I live. I won’t even go near water where I think there could be something like that. That one is HUGE though! Holy Crap!

      I don’t blame you! I think I would have to give up fishing if I ever moved to Florida. LOL

      My pleasure Sherri and I’m glad I could make your world whole again. LOL

    P.S. I have added you to my RSS reader again. Somewhere way back you hadn’t posted for ages & I thought you’d quit blogging. Welcome back, even if you didn’t really leave…

      Me? Quit blogging? NEVER!

      I spend my summers living in the resort we belong too and posts during that time are few and far between. You must not have received the memo? LOL

    Amazing pictures I bet the crocodile was excited with his find until he was strung up. Good news bad news I guess.

      At least his last meal was a good one! LOL
