The link below shows some hazards to distribution workers found in Florida recently.

I'm sure there are other such stories out there. Let's hear them!

I once opened the door to an outdoor enclosure that had 6 pygmy rattlers and a single coral snake in it!! I have no idea how they all got in there? I've also been chased by an alligator while I was working on an irrigation pump down by a small lake. Thats Florida for ya!!
