This alligator needs to be questioned as to what he knows.

My favorite alligator-on-golf-course story happened last year in Australia.

There was some major flooding in Brisbane which included a golf course. As the water receded, smaller 'ponds' remained with stranded alligators.

Talk about a water hazard!

Maybe the answer is to watch wtf you're going near a lake or swamp if it's accidental. People die all the time because they are stupid
1. It's FL. Muddy standing water is virtually everywhere, as are freshwater lakes and streams. And I mean EVERYWHERE. One just has to be vigilant here. Be aware that these things do exist, as do countless other dangerous animals.

[SIZE=+2]The Purist [/SIZE]
[SIZE=+1]by Ogden Nash [/SIZE] I give you now Professor Twist,
A conscientious scientist,
Trustees exclaimed, "He never bungles!"
And sent him off to distant jungles.
Camped on a tropic riverside,
One day he missed his loving bride.
She had, the guide informed him later,
Been eaten by an alligator.
Professor Twist could not but smile.
"You mean," he said, "a crocodile."

So sad, for both boy and gator.


We actually don't get many gator deaths here. I am guessing he was already dead? Weird....

Just remember next time you order that gator tail appetizer: chances are that protein came from human flesh!

I am sorry for the poor person- who dies, I do not know the circumstances- but I'm sure had a family. Mostly tourist get bit, they just do not know.
