Great story. Somewhat amused they have to tell people not to feed the alligators.
I used to live on this canal. One night I was fishing off the dock and the gator ate a fish I was reeling in. I didn't realize at first what had happened, since it was well, night, but believe me, when I did, I broke off the line really quickly and ran back up to my deck. My dog, being smarter than me, ran first.
