sad news of an Alligator attack on Sanibel

Jump to last reply

A woman who had worked on Sanibel for many years was attacked by an alligator while working. She later died of the wounds. I am linking the report.

I thought about whether to post this news or not, but have decided to as I often read of people wanting to see alligators when they come to Florida. They are everywhere and most often are not agressive but there are always exceptions. Alligators deserve our respect and distance: they are not a tourist attraction. I have seen people throwing food into the water trying to attract these creatures as I drive by one of the parks on Periwinkle. Perhaps they want their children to see one. There is no need to bait them, if your eyes are open you will notice them floating around like logs on a pond.
