Whats the problem with

Whats the problem with finding an alligator? My Son likes to chase the baby ones into the pond down by the river. He had one on a fishing line at the Jackson Ave fishing pond a few days ago but I let it go because you are not supposed to molest them.

LOL ^^humble!^^ I always

I always wondered why they came up with the wording in the law about "molesting" an alligator.
I know there is nothing funny about molestation and I am aware of the verbage.
Still it makes you think about the old joke (whats worse than a pitbull with aids?) (the guy who gave it to him..)
To me the alligator snapping turtle poses more of a threat when fishing the little pond. The turtles just have a nasty attitude and come out looking for a fight the alligators just want to get away.
What's worse he's like an armor plated alligator.

CCSO deputies don't have to

CCSO deputies don't have to worry about finding any alligators on sidewalks south of Washington Road because there aren't any sidewalks there.

Ya they should build side

Ya they should build side walks not waste money on a trolley or new ballpark.Took my boy to Hilton Head over the Spring break he had the best time messing with the gators and they have some big ones.Also it was very nice to get on your bike and ride both on the beach and the side walks.They have some very lovely bike paths.The people are real nice.
