Shoo Alligator! 82-year-old Florida man takes on gator with a broom

lThis seems to be the week of wildlife vs. the elderly. Yesterday, we ran a link about a confrontation between a 92-year-old Colorado man and an 800-pound bull moose. Now, southwest Florida’s News-Press.com reports that 82-year-old John Turney of North Fort Meyers has taken on and subdued an 4-foot aligator with nothing more than a broom and a garden hose.
