Well the way it is dealt with most of the time is whenever a gator comes up it should be scared away and not fed. I am not saying it is the gators fault but it is what it is an animal with killer instincts. Around my marina whenever come into the area we would fire a warning shot and problem solved. I viewed it as training for them and believe it saved many of them because anytime they seen people they would make sure they were not seen. The place i speak of never had gators around until the late eighties.
What you say about having to have a gun is wrong just by the article alone because they beat the gator away. There is no shortage of gators in America and the population is thriving. The majority of them will not go to humans unless they are fed.

people will kill alligators and make boots if they have the chance.

If that kid had died, I'm all for putting that particular gator down. But the kid was basically unscathed, so why come back and kill it? My point is ANY gator would've done the same thing. So to prevent this from happening again, better kill 'em all, because it's in all of 'em. I said it before, the gator was being a gator.

No, but it was obviously no longer in possession of it's natural avoidance response to humans either. It is very unusual for a gator to attack a kid unprovoked....though of course, the kid could have been stupid and started it...don't know. Florida has pretty much a no tolerance policy once a gator has attacked a human (and with good reason, what if it attacked again? Imagine the outcry).....

Way to go DAD! Kudo's to the bystander too! There's too many alligators out there, they need to thin them out.
