While I am fully aware that it is not nice to tamper with Mother Nature, there WAS something about the knowledge there was a wily Florida Alligator loose in a California lake, evading the best efforts of police and rangers to capture him, that made me really happy.
However, Reggie was finally captured and incarcerated, comfortably, to be sure. But his Robin Hood like existence has come to an end. Happy Trails, Reggie.
