The woman grabbed a shotgun and blazed away. The alligator escaped with a flesh wound. The neighbors heard shots and called police, who promptly cited the woman for hunting without a license.

Send a few of those alligators over to the Rio Grande.......... slow down some of those illegals.

That was a fun read.

Worthy of a bump.

Every so often the human race needs a wakeup call that we are nowhere near the top of the food chain (it keeps the survivors on their toes...).

The McIlhenny family from Avery Island, makers of Tabasco, which is quite good in my mother's gator sauce piquant.

Must be why they're eating girls instead.

Gators like sharks have to eat too....what is the issue? We must respect nature as we do diversity.

Were these women distracted by Ipods? If not, I might suggest, run faster and don't feed the gators.

No one seems to mention that alligators were put on the endangered species list some years ago when there were very few of them. The population exploded. Exploded so much that they were recently removed (or moved to a lesser rung) from the endangered list. More alligators, more people, more "interactions". Seems obvious to me.

It's funny that in Florida, if a person did what the gator did, she could have legally shot him. Plus I'd take it to court, as I beleive hunting is generally considered an outdoors activity. Catching fish in the living room aquarium doesn't require a fishing license. ( I hope)
And chihuahuas make loust bait, use a poodle instead.

Agreed, but we're only talking a three-foot gator hear. As Carl Hiaasen pointed out in his much better and more informative article, "If you see a gator that small eat a full-grown dog, call Ripley's immediately."

Hiaasen also points out that the biggest problem is people stupidly feeding gators down here instead of generally keeping their distance. Anyway, this whole gator mania thing is kind of like the summer of the shark a few years back -- an MSM-inspired frenzy. I live in one of the western subdivisions. Just keep pets and small children away from the wetland ponds and canals, and remember that gators can actually charge straight at you, but can't zig-zag (so you've got to zig and/or zag).

We frequently forget that to the predator the world is a pantry and what it contains is supper or a tasty snack.
