Florida the rules are different here Chapter CLXIX
Tug of war Florida style.
This is the story of the one that got away.Children versu a 10-foot alligator. Don't you just love the Sunshine State?
Which is fortunate for the group of Harbordale kids who decided to play tug-of-war with a 10-foot alligator Tuesday.
The kids, who had been fishing for crabs, tied a raw chicken to a rope to lure a gator that was swimming in a canal. The idea worked almost too well: The gator chomped down on the chicken, then got its toothy snout ensnared in the rope.
Not wanting to lose their rope, the kids hung on. The ensuing back-and-forth drew a large crowd, then the police, to their block.
