This is the claim being made:
Oh, I can’t believe she’s never going camping again because she saw an alligator! Personally, I like running across this sort of animal.
I hope there is an actual scientific investigation of this. I’d love to know if this creature could possibly have wintered over. This is a rather large beast to haven not been in the wild for about a year, though I suppose it is possible that someone fed it up in their basement.
