I love the name of this 'gator. :D I know they're dangerous, but I can't help liking them.

Heh...liking them and respecting them go hand in hand in my book.  I love them too...safely...from a distance.  It's the a-holes who take them for granted that get them killed.  Some dipsh** walks their Yorkie along the water between the "Caution - Alligators" signs and the dog gets eaten.  So they kill the gator....like it did something wrong for snacking on a small mammal in its territory.  Sorry but I think the owner should have been charged.

I have an enormous amount of respect for them, which includes not demanding hugs. :giggle:
Oh, I hate that they're killed. Come on, it's an ALLIGATOR. What do people expect to happen? Even without the sign...ugh. Definitely should be charged for it.

People, having been raised in homes where they were always sheltered, expect that it is someone else's job to watch out for them.  If they get hurt being stupid, they will sue too.

My favorite was the guy who sued when someone ran over his fingers with their car.  Of course he was stealing their hubcaps at the time.....

Even the sheltered should learn from mistakes. You put your finger in fire, you learn it's hot. It's that simple. :/

:lmao: Did he either expect to win his case or actually manage to?
