Cape Cod Gator

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 23rd, 2008

On Sunday, June 22, 2008, Massachusetts got into the out-of-place alligator business. Welcome to another summer of errant crocs in North America!

Barnstable police and Barnstable Natural Resource officer responded to a Hyannis resident who reported finding an alligator resting under his car, on Hiramar Road.

The animal was described as 3-feet in length and about 60 pounds, said Natural Resources Officer Thomas Murray.

The call came in as a 911 call and at first police were not sure if the caller was joking, reported the Cape Cod Times.

They obviously haven’t read the recent “Crazy Crocs” items on Cryptomundo!

To think I went all the way to Florida to see alligators in March. I could have waited until June and gone to the Cape to see one “in the wild.” You never can tell what surprises are out there when you go to start your car. Perhaps it was part of the advance reptilian invasion out to steal gasoline from Cape Cod vehicles?

    Perhaps climate change is allowing these animals to encroach upon once inhospitable environs. But something tells me Cape Cod hasn’t gotten THAT warm yet. 😀

  3. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Crocs and giant serpents. I think these outbreaks should be addressed as a national emergency by US 0fficials, before it gets carried away.

  4. Bake Neko responds:

    Wow! Out of place crocodilians are giving alien melanistic cats a run for their money in sightings. Cape Cod?! Could this be related to climate change?

    All I have to say is two words… “Lake Placid”
