Woman, 74, gets revenge on gator with hose

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- An elderly woman, who was bitten by an alligator while working in her backyard, beat back the reptile with a garden hose.

Constance Gittles, 74, of south Punta Gorda was watering plants Tuesday when a nearly 6-foot-long alligator bit her leg just above the ankle.

"I just whacked him right in the snout with the nozzle," she said. "After that, he took off," Gittles told the News-Press of Fort Myers.

Gittles received three puncture wounds and some smaller scrapes and abrasions from her confrontation with the alligator.

I'm sure glad that she was able to defend herself. She sure has a lot of spunk!

I had heard that there was a problem with them. And, that they thought it was because of the drought. But, I didn't hear how it was contributing to it.
