I got this email from my neighbor across the pond yesterday;

"With the recent rains has come an 16" to 18" alligator. Jodi and I spotted it today in the high water next to our fence. I was able to shoot at it with a shotgun but seemed to miss. I'll continue to look for it as I feel this is not a welcomed animal within our pond"

Meh that's nothing to be worried about. I don't even start harassing them until they get about 5 foot. Pretty common round these parts.

I would delete this post quickly!!!!!!!!!! There are big fines for endangering them or killing them without a permit.

That's just a baby. You could still play with that one. Perfect pet size.

It may not be illegal to shoot one where his friend lives since he is across the pond.

I would start looking for the little tyke's mom and dad though.

I would've never guessed not shooting it would've been a good idea....

I think the email was a hoax. Shannon Tompkins wrote an article in today's Houston Chronicle. Some of the words looked as if they came from the article.
