Why does this sound like a bad idea? Average person = dumber than garbage. Average crocodile = smarter than garbage. warning. does not compute.

So, there's a town in Colorado that already does this? I wish they could have told us which, that sounds too outrageous to be true. I'd like to know if it's working or not.

Not to be too picky, either, but that link description is a little thin. Just a thought...

Just a thought but can't we just all go out to the Ananova site?

Sounds like a good idea if put into widespread use.

The Colorado Alligator Farm, from its garish sign to the gift shop you must exit through, combines the tackiness of a Florida tourist attraction with an undeniably efficient living trash-disposal system. The Denver Post

This link explains the operation a bit better: "In 1987, 100 small alligators were brought in to dispose of dead fish and processing waste, that can be 60% of whole fish weight after filleting."

And no, it doesn't sound like a bad idea at all. Too bad a story like this had to wind up as a quirky story on Ananova.
