Animal Jailbreaks

An alligator farm in Florida had a little excitement recently when 17 reptiles tunneled their way out.  Several have been recovered, but neighbors have been warned to be cautious due to the probably presence of gators on the loose.  Or at least more gators than normal.  It is Florida after all.

No word yet on how the gators got shovels, boards for shoring up the tunnel, or blankets to sew into uniforms.  A blind gator who was left behind refuses to talk except to say that his skills at forging travel documents is legendary.  Floridians are told to be on the lookout for a gator on a BMW motorcycle.

In other news, a cow in Pennsylvania on its way to being slaughtered made a break for it and had one hour of freedom before being corralled with police cars and lassoed using dog leashes.

Bossy apparently outran and outfoxed several humans during her break for freedom.  No word yet on whether or not the exercise was good for her texture or taste.  Thankfully, the local SWAT team was not called out for this incident. We know this because neither the cow, the cow's pets, nor innocent bystanders were shot.
