A Texas man wrangled an alligator to get his daughter to her first day of school. Mike Trinh was getting ready when she discovered the creature was blocking the front door.
At first, Trinh didn't believe his daughter. "I'm thinking she's joking, not wanting to go to school. I say, 'Just stop! We're going to school today. Just stop it," Trinh recalled.
Trinh says he channeled the late Steve Irwin and covered the alligator's eyes with a towel. He was then able to get around the animal to get his daughter to the car, and to class!
Gators have been on our minds lately with the devastating attack on an 88 year old woman at Sun City.
