Don’t Wrestle An Alligator!

A Louisiana man learned his lesson after picking a fight with a live alligator.

GLEN BONIN and a few friends spotted the 11-foot gator on a road in the town of Sulphur.  After downing some alcohol, the men decided to engage the animal.

Bonin says, “(We) took our shirts off, threw it on (the gator’s) face, and we were going to come from behind it and jump on it.”

Unfortunately, the reptile knew something was up and spun around quickly and bit down on Bonin’s hand and tried to rip his arm off.  Somehow, the guy managed to escape the gator’s grip and the men ran off.

Bonin’s hand required medical attention, but he’s hopeful he’ll eventually be able to use it again.  Now, he advises anyone who stumbles across an alligator to “leave it to the professionals.”


A Soccer Fan Fell Through a Second-Story Window When the U.S. Gave Up That Last-Minute Goal

It was pretty heartbreaking when the U.S. gave up that last-minute tying goal to Portugal on Sunday.  But for one guy, it was almost BONE-breaking.

Eric Corey is president of the Miami chapter of a soccer fan club called the American Outlaws.  So he’s a SUPER-FAN, and was watching the game at a bar in Miami.

Anyway, right before the goal, Eric was leading the whole bar in a chant.  Then when Portugal scored, he flipped out . . . and fell backward through a second story WINDOW.

There are a bunch of photos of him being rescued.  Luckily, he landed on an awning, and wasn’t seriously hurt.

Check out the photos by clicking here.


Guy Sues Airline That Flew Him To Grenada, Not Granada

You say Grenada, I say Granada!

Edward Gamson, a Florida dentist, wanted to travel to Granada, Spain.  But where he ended up makes this a Freak File!!!

A little geography lesson: “Granada, Spain is a city founded in the 11th century, famous for its Moorish history and architecture; while Grenada is a Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela with beautiful beaches and a big producer of spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.”

The dentist didn’t notice anything amiss until the flight tracker on his plane out of London indicated that the aircraft was headed west—on a 9-hour flight, not the 2-hour jaunt to Spain he wanted.

Yes!  He ended up in Grenada courtesy of British Airways!!!

There’s salt in the wound because the airline refused to refund the $4,500 first-class ticket!

Now Edward is suing the airline for $34,000.

A Kid Faked His Own Kidnapping to Avoid a Dentist Appointment

Last month, a 12-year-old in France disappeared.  Then when police found him hiding in some bushes, he told them he’d just been ABDUCTED.  But he managed to get away, and was able to give them a pretty detailed description of the kidnapper.

So they had a sketch artist draw a picture of the guy.  And for the past month, they’ve been looking for him.

But they realized it didn’t add up after they went over security footage from the area where the kid said it happened.

So last week, they decided to interview him again, and he finally admitted he HADN’T been kidnapped.  He was just hiding in the bushes because he didn’t want to go to the DENTIST.

But he lost that bet.  The guy DID have a gun . . . pulled it out . . . started SHOOTING . . . and hit the robber in the chest.

The robber was hospitalized, and the guy who shot him isn’t facing any charges.

A Family Lost Their Dog Camping, Went Back Two Years Later and Found It Sleeping

In October 2012, Nathan and Erin Braun were camping at Tahoe National Forest in northern California.  And their five-year-old golden retriever, Murphy, ran off.

When they couldn’t find her, they put fliers up everywhere, but still didn’t have any luck.  And they had to face the fact that they might NEVER see Murphy again.

But then, someone spotted her at another campsite a few miles away . . . 20 MONTHS after she went missing.

So Nathan and Erin drove there and left Murphy’s blanket on the ground, thinking she might be able to smell it.  And they were RIGHT.  Because on the very first night, Murphy showed up, laid down on the blanket, and went to sleep.

She was reunited with her family on Sunday.  No one’s sure how she was able to survive so long in the wild, especially since she went through two winters there.

Check out a photo of Murphy by clicking here.

A Man Learns the Hard Way Why You Don’t Slap a Porcupine

50-year-old Antonio Rodrigues Mororo of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was having a family party at his house last week, and his wife couldn’t get inside . . . because there was an animal blocking the door.

Antonio thought it might be an opossum . . . but it was actually a porcupine.  He probably should’ve known that from all the sharp quills sticking out of its back.

Anyway, Antonio tried to get rid of it by slapping it away . . . and wound up taking 400 quills to the hand.

He went to the hospital and they pulled out all the quills and gave him a tetanus shot . . . which is probably no big deal when you’ve just taken 400 quills to the hand!!!

Antonio is still recovering . . . with a ton of little holes in his hand.

Click here to see pictures of his hand


Stupid Criminals!!!

A woman and her boyfriend were out to sea off the coast of North Carolina when they got into a fight.  The girlfriend was so angry that she wanted to go home, but the boyfriend refused because they were too far out.

So she called 911 and said the boat was SINKING!!  The 911 authorities sent out the Coast Guard who searched for two hours, and spent $80,000 to find her.  When they found the boat, the only thing that was sinking, was the angry girlfriend’s relationship!!!!

She has to pay back the $80,000 and she’s also facing up to $250,000 in fines, and six years in jail.

Stupid Criminals!!!


A Zoo Adopted a Stray Cat After It Became Best Friends with a Lynx

A stray cat somehow got into a zoo in St. Petersburg, Russia recently . . . they think it was looking for food.

The cat made a beeline for an enclosure where a LYNX was living.  A lynx is basically like a bobcat, and they weigh up to 60 or 70 pounds.

So you’d expect the story to end with a very DEAD cat and a very happy lynx.  But instead, they became BEST FRIENDS.  And since they’re so inseparable, the zookeepers have decided to ADOPT the cat so they can LIVE together.
