A North Carolina fisherman was in for the surprise of his life after he thought he was reeling in a large mouth bass at a lake this weekend, only to find that what was on the end of his line was a 5-foot long alligator.
He captured video of his catch as he reeled the gator to shore at Falls Lake, near Raleigh.

He kept the gator on the line as he called wildlife officers, but it broke loose before they arrived.

“When I realized I had something different is the weight of it and the way it grabbed it. I caught whatever it was, and that's when I come to realize, reeling it in, it was an alligator,” said Stephen Rhodes.
Experts say it’s unusual to find alligators that far north and inland. Last month, Channel 9 reported on sightings of an alligator spotted at Lake Wylie. A man and his son saw the 2-foot-long reptile near Copperhead Island while kayaking.
A wildlife biologist told Channel 9 it was likely captured illegally as a baby and dropped into the lake when it became too big.
What could have been a routine emergency call turned into something special.
Baytown, Texas, resident John McCormick had a heart attack while mowing his lawn. McCormick had a history of cardiac issues, according to a local news report.
EMT units and a fire truck arrived at the scene after McCormick’s family called 911. McCormick was rushed to the hospital.
Unfortunately, McCormick died two days later.
However, the family is taking comfort in a kind gesture that the firefighters made after escorting McCormick to the hospital.
The firefighters returned to the McCormick residence and finished mowing the lawn.
After they were finished, the firefighters secured the lawn equipment in the garage and left the family a handwritten letter.
A neighbor spotted the firefighters in action and took photos. The images were posted on Facebook and have gone viral.
The family expressed gratitude for the firefighters’ act of kindness and the positive response the act has received from around the world.Mon, 01 Sep 2014 02:13:28 -0700
The “no paws” rule at one New York City luxury apartment building has dog owners howling.
The New York Post reports that management at Hawthorn Park has ordered residents to carry their dogs across the lobby floor of the building, which is made of marble.
In addition to not allowing dogs to walk on the lobby floor, Hawthorn Park bans dogs over 15 pounds and also makes any resident with a dog take the service elevator.
While some dog owners were miffed at the draconian rules, most seemed resigned to accept them. Residential buildings in New York City are notorious for having strict dog policies.
The new apartment building, which is still partially under construction, offers leases starting at $5,000 per month for a one-bedroom unit.
Glenwood Management, owners and operators of Hawthorn Park, did not return the New York Post’s request for a comment.Mon, 01 Sep 2014 01:45:16 -0700 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
