A video of a Florida highway driver with a giant dead alligator tied to the back of his SUV has gone viral on the internet with people reacting to the wild video.
According to the New York Post;
A startled Sunshine State driver spotted what appeared to be a large dead alligator tied to the back of a Jeep SUV this weekend south of Melbourne.
The massive creature was knotted up from its shuttered snout all the way to its tail and did not appear to be alive, Click Orlando reported Tuesday.
The driver behind the vehicle, Karen Kress, snapped a photo of the terrifying sight.
Floridians are in the middle of alligator hunting season, leading some to believe that the gator had been killed and was being transported home.
From August 15 to November 1, those with valid permits from the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are allowed to hunt the reptiles.
What did that Alligator do to deserve this?
Classic Florida Kan.
Florida Man is an Internet meme popularized in 2013. “Florida Man” refers to an alleged prevalence of male persons performing irrational or absurd actions in the US state of Florida. Internet users typically submit links to news stories and articles about unusual or strange crimes and other events occurring in Florida, with the headlines often literally having “Florida Man…” mentioned in the titles or subtitles of such news reports.
The Miami New Times claimed that freedom of information laws in Florida make it easier for journalists to obtain information about arrests from the police than in other states and that this is responsible for the large number of news articles. A CNN article on the meme also suggested that the breadth of reports of bizarre activities is due to a confluence of factors, including public records laws giving journalists fast and easy access to police reports, the relatively high and diverse population of the state, its highly variable weather, and gaps in mental health funding.
