We go camping at Skidaway Island state park either for 4th of July or Labor Day. I have never seen a gator in the 4 years we have been going there. I guess I will think twice about riding the trails along the marsh next year.

First the deer attack, then this alligator, and then this morning I noticed an inordinate number of possums roaming aimlessly through my neighborhood, tipping over garbage cans and acting in a generally unruly manner. The ends times are here!

This is awful! I was just on the island Saturday walking and roaming the marsh with my husband. Quess I won't do that again when I go back to the Savannah area! Such a beautiful place for this to occur. I always knew they were around, just hoped that I would never incounter one. My prayers are with the family.

The problem is/was some people feed these things thinking it's cute or fun. Then the animals think of people as sources of food and loose their fear of humans and think of them as food. That's when the trouble starts! There is no such thing as a tamed gator, it doesn't happen! Ever! There are gators in the creeks, rivers, lagoons, or any body of water in the South Ga. areas! We see them all the time. They are in the Savannah River! On the Golf Course at the Westin Hotel. Everywhere!

Some folks say that 'gator tastes like chicken. Eat more 'gator before they eat you. That poor soul deserved to die of old age, like 150 years and in her sleep, not in the jaws of this 'creature'.
