    *DISCLAIMER* All the events are true. I wouldn't make this kind of stuff up just to post it on a message board to create DRAMA

    So I wake up this morning to the sounds of a crocodile in the midst of a feeding frenzy in my pond. I know it was a croc & not an alligator cause I took biology in grade 10 (TWICE). Canada geese are disappearing from the surface of the water faster than you can say or spell xylophone.

    So I run back to the house, & ask the wife if she bought me a crocodile as a present & put it in the pond. She says no, she would probably put one in my evening bath instead. Then she asked me if my life insurance was payed up. But I digress....

    So I run back down to the pond, thinking this must be another one of those city folks "dump it in the country" & run. I mean in the last 6 months we have had an elephant (great for a big family BBQ by the way, although the leftovers really take up a lot of freezer space), a penguin (great as a centerpiece when doing a formal dinner), and even a kangaroo (I keep the roo in the livingroom, cause its great to only have to look in one place for all the remotes).

    So anyways, I'm thinking how the heck am I gonna get this croc out of my pond without losing a leg. I figure if I can coax it out the pond I can get a decent shot at it with my rifle. Then it dawned on me. I remember reading another post about what crocs like to eat.

    I want to thank Snowball my most EVIL silkie with helping me out. Without her fearless dedication to the cause, I would still have that nasty croc in my pond.


    Now I just gotta decide on making shoes or a new purse for the wife.

    The only mistake I made was shooting the croc before I got rid of the rest of my silkies.
