Who doesn’t love sitting down and watching To Catch A Predator? One mom in Harlingen, took a seat at her own computer and ended up catching her own predator. One who happened to have his sights set on her 12-year old little girl.She didn’t want to be named, to protect her daughter, so we’ll call her Mama Grizzly.

Mama Grizzly says she checks her daughter’s Facebook page every day making sure thing are on the up and up. When she was looking at her daughter’s friend requests she found one without a picture, claiming to be a 20-year-old college guy. So, she acted like her daughter and started chatting with the man. The guy eventually set up a meeting with Mama Grizzly, thinking it was a 12-year-old girl, and the rest is pretty much a textbook To Catch A Predator style takedown.

The one sick twist (and there’s always a sick twist when you’re dealing with cyber sickos) the guy wasn’t a 20-year-old college student. He was a middle school teacher! Gross!

Now, he’s taking a seat in jail, where we’re sure he’ll learn a thing or two about how it feels to be caught by a predator!
