In my many jobs before working in radio I was a stocker at one of the Dollar General stores in Westlake.  One night when I was going out to throw away some trash at closing time, I walked up on a possum in the dark and almost had a heart attack. I can't imagine walking out and being face-to-face with a huge gator.
