This picture was taken at the "Breakers Golf Course" in Palm Beach
County, FL in June, 1998. As the story goes, the first foursome of
the day played together to the 5th hole where one impatient golfer went
ahead of the group. The remaining three, thinking that the impatient golfer
finished without them and was waiting at the nineteenth hole, wasn't
concerned with his absence. After waiting 2 hours for his return
and his car still in the parking lot the threesome notified the club and
the search was on. Of course the impatient golfer was not located but
his clubs were found on the seventh hole.
Three days later, Ole Mose was spotted on the seventh hole and was an
immediate suspect. Ole Mose was an American Croc. that was an infrequent
course visitor for over 20 years. Not too much concern was ever given Ole
Mose whom had always made a hasty retreat whenever he saw anyone coming.
To make a long story even longer, after the course officials, SPCA,
lawyers, citizens groups, Mayor, Palm Beach PD and the Americian Corcodile [sic]
Association of So. Fl. it was decided that to put everyone's mind at
ease, Ole Mose should be unzipped. The attached picture is the result.
