Having an alligator

pull you into the water and tear your arms off, is not something most Canadians worry about while jogging.

Yeah, but in Canada here we have the occasional Bear or Cougar attack. I'd say moose too, but they mostly avoid populated areas, but they're pretty pissy at certain times of the year.

True; In the Spring of 1952, a cow moose with a calf put me up a tree, and kept me there for about an hour.

There we go. Now if anyone can come forward with any Walrus attacks I think then we've got Florida Beat.

I personally have almost been mowed down by a Muskox on a couple of occasions. I wasn't jogging though so it doesn't count.

In roughly the same time frame, my wife's best friend's cousin's daughter's neighbor was bitten on the *** by a big pike after he got it in thre boat. Took four stitches to save his life.... :P

I forgot how nasty those things were. When I was living in Yellowknife, a fellow swimming in Great Slave lake has his lower leg ripped up from a Pike too.

This attack took place about 10 miles from my house. Makes you think when you've got a canal in your back yard.

I bet, especially if you have kids man.

I was joking but a big Pike has all the same equipment as a Barracuda. They are certainly capable of inflicting a nasty bite. I know from bitter experience you don't put a hand in their mouth to take out a hook.

Ok, Now I'm starting to wonder how safe it is to jog in Florida now.


Three women die in suspected alligator attacks in Florida

I think you're safe in the lake with a pike, it's when you take it out of the lake it gets mean

I dunno man. The guy in YK probably has a phobia of the lake now.

But then again the Pike that got him they guessed was around 4' when they checked the damage on him. I'm sure the smaller ones are more timid. I never heard of it til then either.

Hey Amik, judging from the name & Avatar where are you from?
