Three alligator stories I saw in the news today:
- Emotional support alligator enjoys splash pad at park
- SEE YOU LATER: Alligator shows up on porch of West Plains, Mo. home
- Alligator delays flight on runway at Charleston International Airport
Coupled with the story about the triathlete attacked by a gator from ten days ago, that’s a lot of news about alligators recently.
Ya know, since the shark story frenzy in the news in 2001 that was knocked out of the headlines by the events of September 11, any time I see too many different stories with the same animal in them in the news too frequently, I fear we’re about to get a wake up call from the trivia.
