Npr said they found and killed 5 gators in that lagoon. They're gonna check the stomachs for evidence

Nothing funny/weird about a kid getting eaten by a gator or big pharm screwing/killing the entire country.
Yeah just saying it was acting like a daily thread.

Also they found the body near where the gator got him originally. Apparently he was wading in the water when it happened

How come no one is crucifying these parents like the gorilla incident? If they are, I haven't seen it.

Is everyone familiar with the water? That crap is super nasty and looks more like a shitter lagoon than a lake. It's clearly stated that there is NO SWIMMING and the beach spots are only for sunbathing. There also is some nasty parasite that lives in the water at the resort.

I do think the gorilla incident and this one are totally different.

The kid wasn't swimming either.

Most two year olds can't swim so yeah he def wasn't. Point is no one is supposed to be in the water. Wading there is not much different than being too close to the edge of an animal exhibit.

What Im getting at is people may not have crucified the gorilla parents if the kid was killed. Its just way more sensitive whereas its ok to lose it over a dead gorilla. Also i bet a gator gets killed for this. Whether it's the killer or not, it won't surprise me if one is caught nearby and put down.

Edit: wife told me they already killed 5 gators ? Damn....i dont like that at all.

Definitely because he died, and I think the timing of all the **** in orlando has at least a little something to do with it too. Three different incidents so fast.

I have not seen where it happened but the parents are stupid as **** if the child was in the water. It's Florida, you have to assume every waterhole bigger than a bathtub might have a gator in it.

I think he was in a foot of water. That's a decent chunk for a two year old since it is bathwater depth and parents don't leave them in it at home.

DON'T PANIC
Got another email from our subdivision, I'm sure as a response to what happened. Apparently there have been reports of kids throwing rocks at the gators in the ponds. They have all been evaluated to be fearful of humans and, therefore, not a threat. But if, at any point, that changes, the Department of Natural Resources says they need to be removed AND killed. Obviously this has nothing to do with what happened in FL but damn it, people, control your kids!

I've been to Disney 80+ times and lived in south Florida for 10 years in a neighborhood with at least 4 canals. Saw alligators quite often but I have never thought about gators being an issue in the Seven Seas Lagoon. Not sure why because I should have. I could definitely see me or my wife walking with my 3 y/o along the water with our feet in.

More impressive is that it hasn't happened in the 45 years of Disney.
