Midget Tim Stroh Bags Huge Alligator: Tory Beast Sir David Scholey Wounded In The Sun’s Big Game Hunt

by | 21st, September 2011

THE Sun spots “college student” Tim Stroh, 19, who has “bagged one of the biggest gators in Florida on Friday night.”

Wowza! Tim was on an alligator hunt in Florida when he captured a huge critter:

Tim only measures 6ft 3ins and weighs 11st compared to the scaly beast’s 12ft 3ins and 57st.

Yeah, Tim,’s only 6ft 3ins high. He’s practically a midget.

He captured the beast using “what his father called ‘his puny bass rod‘”.

Tim then stunned the animal by hitting it with a bang stick – a .44-caliber rifle mounted on a stick.

Then someone called Rusty harpooned the animal.

The Sun’s Ellie Ross enthuses:

None of the captured gator will go to waste – Tim’s mum plans to make a lamp from a back leg while the edible meat will be cooked. Tim’s dad wants to mount the head and tan the hide and the family even plan to make keyrings out of the bony plates of the gator’s back.

It’s a great story of derring-do. It’s not a bit like the murderous antics of Sir David Scholey CBE who shot a lion dead while “trophy-hunting” in Zambia. The Sun did not mention the height and weight or man nor beast but the paper did headline the bagging:

Who’s the bigger beast?

Nick Parker and Tom Wells were apalled:

MILLIONAIRE banker Sir David Scholey poses by the bloody corpse of a lion after shooting it for fun on a “trophy-hunting” holiday. Other souvenir snaps show the Tory party donor grinning as he stands in front of elephant tusks and antelope and buffalo skulls during a big game hunting trip to Zambia. Angry animal welfare groups yesterday described Sir David’s trips as “sadistic and selfish” — but he said he saw nothing wrong in paying huge sums to kill exotic beasts.

Yep. Much better to kill a big wild animal with a simple brass rod, a harpoon, a keychain in need of a novelty fob while not being a Tory who supports Ken Clarke…
