A fence actually would help this.
I have lived in east Texas and Carolina
The regular everyday people have such measures in backyards
No kidding they go in land.
They however don't like to hunt in wide open spaces and usually hunt on the water edge.
Like you I have dealt with alligators most of my life.
I would never sacrifice safety for landscape.
A four foot typical iron fence would not destroy the landscape. It would require an alligator to climb the fence to attack a human something it
can't do fast enough to actually get a person.
Without the fence the kid didn't even need be in the water. It can easily burst out 10 ft and snatch prey. That what they do.
Total bs if you ask me. Disney was negligent here having known of the dangers and already having warnings.
I used to eat at esters in Port Author where the gators are outside the restraunt and the fence keeps the customers out.
A fence would keep costumers out. If a kid does climb the fence and his parents don't stop him that's not on Disney now is it.
The kid wasn't swimming.
The sign didn't even say keep out of the water.
