CNN Anchor Asks What Was the Alligator Thinking

laneI hate the media.

Lane Graves, the 2-year-old boy who was grabbed Tuesday night by an alligator, has been found dead. He was standing with his parents in one foot of water. The sign said “no swimming”. It’s hard to understand why alligators are in these lagoons. Why aren’t there warning signs. Where are the wildlife people? Florida needs to do something because these alligators are out of control.

The parents came from Nebraska for this dream trip to Disney. The father tried to save the baby but the gator dragged him under the water and drowned him.

I don’t know how you recover from this.

After this horrific tragedy in Orlando, Brook Baldwin of CNN asked animal expert, Tim Williams what the alligator was thinking.

BALDWIN: “There were signs, no swimming. I don’t know if there were no wildlife signs. I realize that when you come to Florida, Florida has a lot of gators. What do you think — if the child was walking around the periphery of this lagoon, it was nighttime, what would the gator be thinking?”

WILLIAMS: “Splashing is attractive to these animals. It could sound like some animal struggling in the water. They come over to see what it is. If they think they have a chance to take that animal, they will. So there’s a lot of things that play in on this.“

There are reportedly about a million alligators in Florida. They can and do travel long distances overland from one body of water to another.

I stayed in Disney World 2 years ago and saw no signs, warnings or literature with any mention that there were alligators in the lakes and waterways throughout the resort. I expect that Disney is going to see a heap of legal problems.

Alligator warning signs would hurt business. Now they have no choice but to put up real warnings.

I think you put your finger on why they didn’t have signs: it would be bad for business. And they probably thought the danger was slight.

You won’t believe this one Sara — the left just continue to sink to unimaginable new lows — as if this whole story wasn’t horrific enough to begin with…
