Hard gator lesson
I just read another tragic story about a family whose young son and dogs were playing fetch in the water at a nature preserve near Gainesville, when an alligator took one of the dogs in an instant. There was nothing the family could do. The 8-year-old son said he had just lost his “best friend.”
When will people learn that Florida’s lakes, ponds and rivers are full of gators? This family could have lost the son.
Please do not tempt fate. Do not be so ignorant or uncaring as to not know and acknowledge the unseen dangers. Summer Devlin Merritt Island
