A man from South Carolina told about finding a huge alligator in his pond near his house and showed pictures of the dead giant reptile. The game warden had been called, and shot and killed the creature. I didn't want to see the pictures.
The alligator had killed fish and ducks in the pond, and the couple just didn't like knowing it was that close to their home. You read accounts of gators running up to a person walking along and killing the person. Their glee over the incident still seemed somewhat unsettling. One of their son asked the game warden for some gator meat to make sandwiches out of it !! I'd heard of people eating gator, especially in S.C.
I couldn't help but say something about making belts, purses, boots, jackets, shoes, etc. from gator hide, that sort of thing is hot right now in fashion, animal prints. But I felt guilty saying it.
Do you think this gator should have been killed?
