Danger: Trash Ahead

Unexpected trashcan finds can sometimes take a person by surprise, but a Waste Management worker in Ohio was left utterly speechless by what he found. As the worker was emptying a commercial container in Columbus, a four-foot-long alligator came from behind the container and lunged at him. Before calling for help, the worker trapped the creature with the first thing available — a trash can. As it turns out, two teenagers had stolen the alligator from a nearby pet store and subsequently released it.

Working in the waste industry has its occupational hazards just like any other field, but threats of the reptilian variety are, thankfully, rare.
