This is why I don't like fishing! You just never know what's down there & coming up.
Maybe it's just the mom in me, but can you imagine if there was a little kid by the water and the alligator went for him/her instead?
I don't know, maybe I just think too much into this stuff, but it's so scary!
And alligators are extremely fast! Way too close for comfort for me.
Here's a similar incident where an 11 year old was reeling in a fish and an alligator came & took it right back into the water.
Again, all I'm thinking is what if that little boy had his hands in the water getting the fish off the hook and never spotted the gator!?
And this one was in South Carolina, in the OCEAN!
NO, THANK YOU!
