Good grief!
Possibly Hundreds of Gators swimming around next! If it rains more and it's going to.

The park is in Beaumont southeast Texas

These poor people are getting hit so hard

Days of flooding have left an alligator rescue and adventure park in Southeast Texas at risk of seeing gators silly swim over fences if the heavy rains don’t let up.

The park has more than 350 alligators in its facilities outside of Beaumont, and the owners of the establishment say they’ve never seen flooding as bad as what they’ve seen following the landfall of tropical storm Harvey. That storm first hit Texas as a hurricane.

An "outbreak" circumvented by the 2nd Amendment.

You underestimate Texas resolve.

so now 'getting eaten' becomes an additional hazard, as if things aren't dangerous enough. bad news.

You obviously may know calibers, but you have no clue what's effective.

A well place .22 round would do the trick.

I highly doubt our Texas breathen are incapable of dispatching these animals. Unless, of course we should allow them to roam freely and pursue their "objectives"???

You are causing worry where there really isn't worry at all..

After reading about the guy getting killed by an alligator at a Houston lake a couple of years ago,all I could think about was my recurring nightmare having to wade through a sketchy area tugging my kids with me. As far as the gator rescue place either secure them or if release is imminent might ought to do away with the big ones. But who wants to volunteer to sit at a gator ranch while its flooding, LOL not unless I'm already sitting in a boat fully locked and loaded

They are already out and and swimming the streets, invading houses.

Maybe they'll be in charge of clean up.

That was sick, I know, but holy crap that's bad down there.


peace

Yeah, that poor cop and his wife from Utah last year losing the 5 year old son to a gator at Disney really broke my heart.

Only takes one of these 350 gators to make this catastrophe worse for 1 or more folks.

as long as they don't use .22lr ammo.
.22lr ammo is just too expensive. i would recommend .45 long colt. a lot less expensive than .22

Yea,

Obviously its highly unlikely for them to escape or for the place to be near a populated area and this is essentially sensationalizing , but still. 350 alligators that are used to being fed by humans. Certainly sounds like a B movie I like Gatorcane.

Just checked the map it's pretty isolated if I got the right one....It's actually pretty cool lol I'd check it out if I was in Beaumont.

I read there was a chemical spill, maybe that will kill things swimming in the water.
