Ask the family of the young girl's family in Fla. after she was eaten while swimming late at nite and alone ina pond, or the old man's family in Fla. who was killed bya gator ina canal while he walked his dog. ANY predator, ANY predator, in the right situation, will attack and eat ANY smaller animal -- it is called "predatory reflex" I think. True, a boat scares them, but it would me too if I were a water animal. A friend who has fished Seminole at night and said the number of gators' eyes looked like a night sky.....I do not believe in breaking laws, ga,e or otherwise, don't believe in taking an animal's life for no reason, but if I ever get near a gator that is not diving and going away - he is one dead SOB.....think of the POTENTIAL damage it could do...I really see absolutely no place for them in today's world. GA should OPEN SEASON on 'em year-round...
