Anybody Have A Spare Cow Lung Laying Around?

Just asking. Apparently, such fine pieces of carrion are good bait for alligators stuck in drain pipes.

Trappers are trying to lure the 8 foot alligator out of the pipe with their secret weapon, a rotten piece of meat.

"It's a rotten cow lung. It's stinky, bloody and it floats," said Tracey Hansen with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Construction crews noticed the gator in the storm drain Monday.

"It's a drain, he could have been walking down the street and just slid in," said Hansen.
