Alligators Get Heartburn, Too.
So I'm sitting there just a few feet away from the "do not feed the alligator" sign watching a family of tourists feed the alligator. I guess people from Ohio can't read. They must have given him a whole loaf of bread and a half dozen chicken wings.
The signs are up for a reason. If you feed an alligator, bad things happen. Having nearly dealt with the business end of an alligator myself I can tell you they're dead serious about their business. The signs are up for a reason, the *law* is there for a reason. By the way, you're not suppose to feed most *wild* animals, here.
- Don't feed the bobcats.
- Don't feed the gators.
- Don't feed the dolphins.
- Don't feed the manatees.
Here's an idea, don't feed anything unless it barks and has four paws. If you feed anything else, it's a no-no.
That "do not feed the alligator sign" is at the Trianon Hotel at the Promenade in front of Bonita Bay, Bonita Springs, Florida. If you're looking for a safe place to get a look at a gator head out to the lake house and watch for the tourists whippin' crap in the water. That's where the gator would be.
