Sad for sure, anyone who knows anything about alligators know they actively hunt at night, and that there is no body of freshwater they won't populate even man made lakes and swimming pools. Florida residents know this but unfortunately toursists don't. I'm sure Disney doesn't want to put beware of alligator signs near it's lake as it would likely turn off the tourists. A sad tragedy that could have been prevented.

There are plenty of signs in this area that are marked "No Swimming". As awful as this situation is, the parents ignored the signs and waded into the lake/pond and their child paid the price.

I agree, ignorance prevailed here, I'm sure the parents didn't consider wading a foot from shore in shallow water to be swimming or that there would be alligators in a man made lake on a Disney resort they paid the ultimate price for their ignorance.

Yeah I can't even begin to imagine something like this happening it is horrific on so many levels and must be very surreal to have it happen when you are on vacation which is when most people are in the best of spirits.

The new quote layering effect is pretty cool.

Indeed it is. I definitely feel for the parents because obviously it sucks that this happened. But warning signs exist for a reason.

Edit: Well, we can see the limitations on the quote within a quote now.

By the way, if that sign existed, 15 yr old me would probably steal it. So, y'know, never make signs that can be used ironically by teenagers.

Apparently that sign would have been better for the alligators.

Four alligators were removed from the water overnight and euthanized to look for signs of the boy.

I'm not making a vague blaming gesture, the kid is dead because the parents were idiots. Utter fucking idiots. And their child paid the price for their stupidity.

tbh I would not be thinking of aligators if I read a "no swimming" sign. I've seen them my entire life and have never had that cross my mind. I guess you should be thinking differently if in Florida though

"No Swimming Alligators" would prohibit the hovering variety, so we should probably go with that option.

But that could also be interpreted as there being no alligators swimming in the water which would make people think it is safe and lower their guard.

When I heard this on the news I didn't realise it had happened actually inside the Disney park.

Why the fuck are there alligators inside a children's amusement park?! Why the fuck are there bodies of water full of alligators that people can get into without any warning or guarding in a children's amusement park?

All sorts of stupid decisions here.
#27
#banallgators or maybe #killallgators ??

Just read that Disney employs some wildlife control system where they typically remove or euthanize all alligators, and this is the first time they've had an incident like this in its 45 years or whatever. Also, the kid was in one foot of water, and the father was close enough to try and wrestle him back from the animal but wasn't able to do so. Damn.

The alligator population of Florida is estimated to be about a million. They can live in pretty much any vaguely clean fresh water. They go where they want and you can't keep them out of anything, especially smaller alligators. It would be almost literally impossible to make fences or whatever to completely keep alligators out of a place as big as an amusement park, especially considering that they are far skilled enough digging and climbing that you would think and surprisingly crafty. You simply can't do it.

I knew a guy in HS that caught a baby one with his hands at our local national park once. But yeah, those things are everywhere. If there's ever one chasing you, you're supposed to run in zig-zag patterns, because they're fast af, but they have to situate themselves just to turn a different direction #protip

Apparently only small ones are particulatly fast. Big ones don't even reach like ten miles per hour. Then again, I guess not everyone can sprint at even ten miles per hour, so I guess that that is fast enough.

Yeah I wondered if that might be the case.

Disney have really fucked up then by not fencing the area off and making it clear to all guests that it's dangerous.

As I understand it, this did not take place in the park but near to it. It's also the first time in 45 years. I don't think this is a Disney failure.
