Elvis the allegator who is a member of a wild life preserve survived a Bowie knife attack thru the brain over the weekend. The park officials stated that the allagator never was a problem and never made contact with humans, but however since he had obvious contact eveidenced by the large knife in his brain, he would have to be destroyed. This comes from a press release made by officials Monday following the attack on the allagator, there was no evidence or reports of injury or near death accounts however that warranted the destruction of this animal a year long resident of the park.

So essentially you get stabbed you survive and someone just wants to come along and kill you anyway, that sucks...

He should be relocated to a zoo or something like be relocated to where he wont get stabbed in the brain anymore not killed.

Interesting I'm a swamp baby and our folks did the same thats what first drew my attention to the story. I thought someone got ate playing with one or something. Thinking if you can feed then then why cant you play with them.

No, you can't play with them...you can't really train them, but youcan call them for food...they can learn that a certian call=food. I was never allowed near the back swamp area, and I had to stand well off when he was feeding it.....he loved biscuits!

Thanks for the link ,,,,,,the live broacast stated it had been decided already though. It is on right now Sarasota county officials it will have to be put down because it had contact with humans, and they stated that in the year the gator has been there it has never been a problem.

It was scarey the first time I got close enough to lighty toss a whole dead chicken into her mouth, it was the creepiest thing hearing the bones crack as the gator repositioned it to eventually swollow it whole.
