Yet another use for duct tape...

...Alligator kidnapping.

Five Embry-Riddle students were caught trying to steal a baby gator from a miniature golf course in Daytona Beach last night.  Ain't putt-putt fun enough for y'all?!  

Here's Exhibit A (Perp #1 of 5)
It's somewhat disturbing that with 3 guys serving as "lookout men", Shaggy and pals weren't able to avoid cops.  Even more disturbing is the fact that they were using a palm tree leaf to try and lure away the gator (I typically use the "dead fish on dental floss" - gators are suckers for that).  

Most disturbing of all - the realization that, as Embry-Riddle students, these over-achievers may one day be piloting your next flight to Los Angeles.

As a side note to this gatorific story:  if you are tired of the same-old, same-old reptile snacks, including gator nuggets, gator sticks, gator egg bubble gum, gator jerky, Cajun gator, and swamp & turf, how about adding this fancy treat to the mix? It's the "carbogator" (also known as the "vegangator")
