So some real hot shot cops in Idependence Mo, were faced with a pretty interesting challenge an alligator in the suburbs. So of course they shot it with a rifle but there was a slight catch……
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Police responding to a rare alligator sighting in suburban Kansas City took quick action to kill the beast, shooting it in the head while it lurked menacingly in the weeds leading to a pond.
It wasn’t until a second rifle shot bounced off the reptile’s head that the officers realized they had mortally wounded a concrete lawn ornament
Now don’t get me wrong I am sure they were caught up in the moment and didnt really have any training on what to expect when you shoot a gator. But still one would think that since only about 99% of cops carry a good bright flashlight with them they would have been able to get enough light on the target to know what the hell they were shooting at.
