Joldnol, good for you. Sometimes it takes a Village to educate a moron.
Some people are unaware that feeding gators is often a death sentence for the animals.
If public education means public signs, there are signs at Lake Sumter asking people to not feed gators.
People ignore the signs and feed the gators anyway. Sigh.

That is why I'm not in favor of signs prohibiting saving chairs at The Squares.
Whoops, that's a different thread!

Prada if female, Ferragamo if male. Now, who's going to volunteer to find out?

I'd like to see him named Beethoven. Or maybe dog poop, or the developer. that way some people will go up and try to kick him, and get the damn leg bit off.

Why would anyone want him gone? All it's going to take is ONE idiot (and all of you probably at least know one) that will say something about it needs to be removed or try to get a selfie with the gator or thinks it's hungry and start feeding it - do something/everything idiotic - and there goes the gator. We had a 5 footer that lived on the Acadian Hills Country Club that we belonged to in Lafayette, LA back in the early 2000's. No one messed with it and it never bothered anyone. The gator at Brownwood is in his natural (albeit man-made) habitat. For those of you that have this undesirable urge to bother everything that is not yours that you think you must, grow up, act like a mature adult and leave the gator alone for the rest of us to enjoy catching a glimpse of. PLEASE LEAVE IT ALONE, simple as that.

The only time I've heard of anyone disturbing a gator on the courses or by the retention ponds is when a Westie almost became a snack and the owner fought the gator for his dog. Once the gator reaches a certain size, it is removed and killed, but most do fine until that point, even the one at LSL, which is fed by humans.
