It's fun to stalk an alligator! Razz
We had one in our small backyard pond that must have been fed by someone, since when it heard you coming it would quickly swim TOWARDS you. I've never seen an alligator behave that way, and I hope I never do again.
We called the Wildlife guys and they never came, so we shot it ourselves, we really did... I mean, we have 3 dogs.
With my husband's first shot it kept swimming towards us. Two shots to the head, and we never saw it again.
Still I've never been so afraid of a gator in my life!
Since then, we've put up a radio fence for the dogs which keeps them well away from the pond. They ALWAYS have their radio collars on!
