Summer of the Gator

In what can only be described as truly shocking and very gruesome stories, three people in Florida have been killed in the past week by alligators. The first victim was a jogger who was attacked and killed by a nine and a half foot alligator last week. The second and third victims were found this weekend. All three incidents occured in different parts of Florida. As disturbing as these incidents are, I hope that it merely causes people to be more aware of their surroundings. I have a feeling that the more likely result will be a media frenzy dubbing this the "Summer of the Gator."

I always say that sharks shouldn't be that scary, because all you have to do is stay out of the water. That pretty much could be said for alligators. No one was eaten by an alligator while in the parking lot at Wal-Mart. Perhaps one should avoid snorkling in alligator/shark infested areas.
