Has Florida Man redeemed himself?

Here's an interview with the guy. The puppy, Gunner, was 3 months old and he had only had the puppy for a week. The Florida Wildlife Federation had asked if they could put cameras up on his property to monitor the various wild animals and it was their cameras that had caught the footage. This was my biggest fear when I first moved south with my dog but everybody told me, Oh, that never happens. By the way, Gunner did spend a couple days at the vets. He had gotten water in his lungs and had one puncture wound but he is fine!

I remember that on the local news FB feeds here. I do not recommend watching the unedited YouTube video of it. The puppy screams are hard to unhear.

FWIW, YouTube is blocked so I don't know which video you shared in the post.

Why in the **** is there a rattlesnake in Florida?!?

Florida is just one big invasive species extravaganza. There's literally a population of wild monkeys that descended from escaped theme park animals in Florida, never mind all the pythons, iguanas, and weird exotic fish. Rattlesnakes are downright mundane by comparison. Florida is like Australia but with 100000% more meth and cocaine.
