Passerby Keeps Cat From Becoming Gator Meal

Woman throws shoe at hungry alligator about to eat kitty

A hungry gator looking to make a meal out of a cat was thwarted by a passerby who was armed with a shoe in Miami Wednesday morning.

The incident happened when the woman spotted the four foot long gator as she was driving along West Flagler Street near 69th Avenue around 3 a.m.

Sensing the gator was about to make an early breakfast out of the kitty, the woman tossed her shoe in their direction, startling the gator and giving the cat an opportunity to escape.

Police arrived and shut down the road as a trapper went to work tying up the gator. Officials said it would be released into the wild.
