With all this other stupid “news” going on right now, GATORWATCH!!1 has been a little slow, and keeps getting pushed off the local news. I can honestly say that I’m going to need some help from the rest of the world to maintain my focus through the long cold winter, and holy shit did I just get it. THE CROCODILE HUNTER HIMSELF is coming for Reggie next spring!
“It’s a promise,” he told Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who accompanied the shaggy-haired Aussie and asked him to return next spring, the Breeze reported.
“We’ll be waiting for you,” Hahn replied, according to the Breeze.
So, in April or May, Irwin will return to Machado Lake, along with his traps and other gear, and he’s confident of trapping Reggie, succeeding where three other gator wranglers failed.
One to two weeks should do the trick, Irwin reportedly said.
“I can’t wait to come back to have a go at this one,” Irwin said, according to the Breeze. “But it’s going to be a challenge.”
I can’t confirm, but I hear reports that Irwin told Hahn that she was a “clever girl, a real beauty,” right before he left.
