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 to 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 American Crocodile Association of So. Fl. it was decided that to put everyone's mind at ease, Ole Mose should be unzipped.
