That is a lot of the problem. We went overseas in 70 and disney opened while we were in England. We came back in 71 and you already could barely recognize the place. It used to be such a nice conservative town.

Sad situation. We lived on a lake in the Orlando area before moving to Texas. I had a 5-6 ft alligator come out of the water as I was walking a new puppy on the bank shortly after we moved into our home there. That gator made somebody a nice pair of shoes or handbag after a quick phone call. Later found out a lady two doors down, and which put up a stink when we were trying to removed the gator, was the one who was feeding it.

Learned to always keep my eye on the water when walking along lakes.

Your old neighbor is responsible for that gator's death. Feeding wildlife makes them dependent and comfortable around humans. A dangerous situation when the animal is a predator. I think there is another thread around here that starts like that.

Yea but as long as someone ate it I have no problem with killing them. They are not endangered like they once were and they are very tasty.
