An alligator hunter and his 13-year-old daughter are called in after the animal spooks residents in Missouri City, Texas. Vanessa Johnston reports.


When an alligator in Missouri, Texas, began lurking around this neighborhood, a gator hunter was brought in to help. NATS — “Gator on baby!” Chris Stephens struggles to hang on. NATS — “Oh yeah big boy!” But luckily he’s got back up… from his 13-year-old daughter, Taylor. Then a police officer tapes up the mouth. But as Chris prepares to haul her away, he notices something… NATS — “It’s fat, holy cow!” And warns the gathering crowd. SOUNDBITE (English) ALLIGATOR HUNTER CHRIS STEPHENS, SAYING: “The next person may have their chihuahua with them, and the gator’s not mean, he’s just thinking — wow, they brought me a chihuahua today!” For Taylor, helping her Dad — who’s a licensed nuisance hunter — is no big deal. (SOUNDBITE) (English) GATOR HUNTER’S DAUGHTER TAYLOR STEPHENS SAYING: “I’ve been doing it since I was 4, so it’s not scary. It’s more of a routine.” The alligator is off to the alligator farm… and the father-daughter duo pack up for the next hunt.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
