Re “Gator captured in Murrells Inlet neighborhood after eating dog” article in The Sun News.
I read that a dog was eaten by an alligator at Blackmoor, where they never had a problem before. Actually, there was one in the pond on the 4th hole I think, a par 3, that was removed a few years ago.) Well folks, the days of gators not being a problem are over.
I live in Connecticut but have house in Wachesaw East. I'm on a pond across from the 7th tee box. We had a gator about three years ago that would come on my grass and bask in the sun. There was also one in the pond on 17.
Every time we come down, which is every five weeks or so, something new is being built. The construction on S.C. 707 is constant, with the new assisted-living facility, the new Publix, etc. Gators, snakes and other creatures have to go somewhere.
Watch your dogs, your kids and yourselves. All we are is food to them.
I told my wife, if we see a gator in the yard, I only have to outrun you.
