    Condolences to the gator. The gator probably was sleeping long The Edge and the lady's dog attacked it and then the lady got involved and got killed

  • aguywhodoesntexist says:

    What was the condition of the woman’s body? I heard they found an arm in the alligator’s stomach.

  • This alligator wants the dog. The alligator respond; 'the dog or you." Sad ending for the woman. No alligator feeding from people.

  • This is the thing…living in Florida or anywhere here along the Gulf Coasts of Alabama, Mississippi & Louisiana, you have to know that there are big gators, many large enough to eat you. I find it reprehensible that a gator must be killed because someone THINKS it may have been involved in an attack. If ANY gator is hungry enough, it may see you as food…that is not the gators' fault, he or she's just doing what an alligator does. If you walk your dogs by the water, ponds, lakes or streams down here on the Gulf Coast, YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT ALLIGATORS ARE NATURALTO OUR AREA and gators, large or small, see small dogs as food. As a resident of, or even visitors, must be aware that large reptiles with powerful tails and large teeth are out there. It's entirely up to you to be safe around marshy areas, rivers, lakes, ponds and even sometimes, in your neighbors swimming pools. We all feel for the family members who have lost someone to these kinds of attacks but all of us have to be smart when your walking, swimming or relaxing around particular areas where 12 foot long reptiles live and feed.

  • M.E. Felton II says:

    Humans should learn to stop invading territories that animals need to survive, as well. Humans are very intrusive and genocidal to animals and nature..

  • Thats a Life Sentence, EXECUTE the gator! Animal= Animal? Mistaken for Prey? Nonono everything is in their menu including human. SO dont go near the lake in Florida, u never know when death comes, gator gonna play hide and seek waiting for their next food to show up.

  • Some people are just hard headed man, this is Florida where u should not trust no open water, not even your pool if it's on the outside
