Here are a few times when animals have taken over the local neighborhood!
9 – Bamboo Strikes Again
Imagine having kids and also a giant 6 foot lizard in your backyard. Yeah, not a pretty sight! An Asian water monitor nicknamed “Bamboo” was found in a South Florida neighborhood by the Lieberman family back in late summer 2018. At first, the family thought it was an alligator because he was so massive, but then he flicked his skinny, forked tongue! Much to the family’s horror, Bamboo didn’t appear to be afraid of people. Like most non-native reptiles throughout Florida, the Asian water monitor is an invasive species introduced to the area by people who kept them as pets and released them into the wild when they became too much to handle. These gigantic lizards have been breeding throughout Florida, and are an amphibious menace to many native animals. Apparently, Bamboo was someone’s pet, but the owner just wasn’t responsible enough to keep Bamboo in control. The 6-foot, 100-pound lizard had been going around the neighborhood thwarting all attempts of capture for weeks. Asian water monitor are a breed of gargantuan lizard native to Southeast Asia. They have an outstanding sense of smell and have even been used in Asia for missing persons and death investigations. Water monitors typically feast on rodents, birds and eggs. Theoretically, Bamboo could eat a small dog!
8 – Goose attack
We often see Geese depicted as symbols of elegance and peace but they also can be your worst nightmare. A Canada goose deciding to unleash a surprise-attack on a high school golfer in Michigan is a prime example of the testy relationship between Man and fowl. Canadian geese nest near ground ponds which are mostly found in parks and on recreational grounds such as golf courses. Nesting so close to humans means that interaction is inevitable. When we sometimes venture into their territory…..that means the geese juuuust might retaliate! Male Canadian geese are most likely to attack those that get too close to their mates, eggs, or hatchlings. Their methods of attack include biting or whacking someone with their wings. Males can weigh anywhere from 7 to 14 lbs and have a wingspan of 4 to 6 feet. Years of interactions with humans have allowed these animals to become less fearful thus making interaction more common. And that’s why one particular goose went after a Michigan high school golfer in his purple pullover!
7 – Snakes in a Library
Imagine just relaxing and reading at your public library and all of a sudden noticing a snake slithering past your feet! You would think you’d be safe from snakes in a library in the middle of a city but apparently you’re not. Back in 2018 a D.C. Public Library branch was briefly closed when snakes were found having a meeting in the basement! Although this sounds like it could be an awesome premise for a Snakes on a Plane sequel, Samuel L. actually wasn’t a part of this. A staff member found a live snake in the library, and obviously wasn’t that impressed nor surprised, because he captured it and released it outside. However, hours later, a different library employee spotted two new snakes in the downstairs area of the building. The library called pest control and shut down the building until the all clear was given. Snakes often find themselves inside by accident while searching for a place to nest. Depending on their size, they can slither in through gaps in doors or vents and possibly stay long term! It’s unclear how the snakes got into the library but the next time there’s another gathering of snakes, they’re gonna have to be invited!
