Alligator in Michigan

This is a day for creatures far from their natural habitats, huh? Alligators, especially, as a Michigan man who was picking sweet corn near the Indiana border killed one with a crowbar!

According to him, two women a few rows over came running toward him, screaming that they had encountered an alligator. Upon investigating, the man says the alligator rushed him. Though he kept backing away, the alligator continued advancing. The man escaped, but worried about children being attacked, and got the 4' bar from his car. He then confronted the alligator and beat it to death. One Michigan official called the killing "extreme."
