Just when you thought that your booze cache was safe, now you have to watch out for alligator raids! In May, a Floridian alligator broke in through the first-floor window and made a bee line for the wine cabinet. Now, this beggars belief because alligators are not known for their discerning taste in booze. Homeowner, Mary Wischhusen, reported hearing a loud crash from downstairs around 3:30 a.m. When she rushed downstairs to investigate, she was somewhat stunned to find the giant reptile had raided the drinks cabinet. Mary told Fox 13 Tampa: “I heard this monstrous crash, like the roof was falling in on the side of my house. I headed for the kitchen and as I got to the door of the kitchen, I had this beautiful face staring at me as though he belonged there. This 10-foot gator was having a marvelous time sitting in my kitchen. He got my red wine – the good stuff.”
The alligator had clearly got settled in for a night of boozing, as it took two wildlife trappers and ten police officers two hours to persuade the boozy alligator that he had had enough!
