Walt Disney Co. has had more than 240 "nuisance" alligators captured and killed over the last 10 years at its Florida theme park property, according to state records. The records reveal the park's constant struggle to keep alligators away from humans in a region where the creatures live and breed.

It's amazing how non-news stories become news once a tragedy occurs. The opposite is also true--in 2001 I remember hearing about a multitude of shark attacks (even though the yearly count was no higher than in the past). Then magically there were no more attacks reported after September 11th.

As we said in the earlier thread, you can remove *an* alligator, but alligator-kind is at home in its Florida habitat.

Gator, these are your kindred--can't you do something about them?

This would be like trying to get rid of all the deer in Ohio. Or anywhere for that matter.

Clearly the war on alligators has not gone far enough. It's time we start treating these radical alligators like the savage creatures like they are and make all of the swamps in Florida glow!

Just build a wall and have the gators pay for it.

And hire immigrant gators to build it for minimum wage.
