Alligators take two women

Well, give em back.

THE bodies of two women, both apparently killed by alligators, have been found less than a week after a similar death in Florida, which has had just 17 fatal alligator attacks in the past 58 years.

I blame this on people's stupidity. Don't pet the alligators cause they bite. Unless alligators have learned how to drive and pretend to have broken down on the side of the road waiting for someone to pull over and offer assistance and then, while the good samaritan calls for a tow truck on their cell phone, the alligator pulls a gun and fires in cold blood (I realize alligators are cold-blooded so that's funny on two levels) there really is no reason to "bump" into these creatures. Leave them alone.

A 23-year-old woman staying at a secluded cabin was attacked while snorkelling at a lakeside recreation area, the fire-rescue service's Joe Amigliore said.

Alligators are in the water. That's why I stay out of the water. I go into swimming pools, and I always check and then double check for anything in the water that might eat me.

"The people she was staying with came around and found her inside the gator's mouth," he said.

Yucky.

The death of another woman, whose body was found in a canal at the weekend, was also blamed on an alligator. The woman's body, which had been in the water for about three days, had bite marks consistent with an alligator attack.

Alligators are mean. Keep your distance people. If you really really need to see an alligator, go to the zoo.
