Since the death of George Floyd, activists and political leaders have redoubled their longstanding calls for a radical overhaul of American policing. Whether it's "defund," "abolish" or simply "reimagine," they seek a revolution in public safety: scale back cops' role, hand responsibility to unarmed civilians, and divert budgets to social welfare in order to target crime's "root causes." © JASON REDMOND/AFP/Getty People carry signs during a "Defund the Police" march from King County Youth Jail to City Hall in Seattle, Washington on August 5, 2020.
Several found humor in the situation, with many local Floridians joking that they didn't find its small stature intimidating and that some of their own pets could have been of assistance if Harris had called them.
One even added, "That's an awesome find. Free new pet?"
According to The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Alligator Hotline, gators are still considered active threats to people and other animals, regardless of what the brave Facebook commenters had to say. While somemay seem cute, the wildlife agency warns they pose great risks.
In fact, people who take alligator wrangling into their own hands face serious criminal charges, like theseen swimming in his neighborhood pond.
