Local firefighters were illegally feeding the predators.
Just when you thought this story couldn’t get any worse, there’s a new report that says that Lane Graves’ untimely death could have easily been prevented if the right people took the right actions at the right time. I know that sounds like a generalized statement, but it seems like the gators that were swimming in the lagoon near the Grand Floridian hotel near Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom were definitely there for a reason. And that’s because people wouldn’t stop feeding them.
As I’m sure we can all recall, the 2-year-old toddler from Nebraska was killed by a gator last month after being dragged into the lagoon he was in. Both his father and mother tried to save him, but were unable to rescue him in time and the young boy ultimately drowned.
And yet, once you read these emails about local firefighters have voluntarily been feeding the gators, you’re head will start spinning all over again, especially given how messy (and how preventable) this tragic accident has gotten.
There’s a new report that says Disney firefighters were asked to stop feeding alligators before 2-year-old Lane Graves was attacked by one near the Grand Floridian Hotel in June.
