Killer Alligator: Female jogger stalked and killed by Florida gator

Yovy Suarez Jimenez, 28, went for a jog in Sunrise, FL, Tuesday night. On Wednesday, construction workers found her dismembered body floating in a canal. And yesterday, the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that she was stalked, killed, and dragged into the water by an 8- to 10-foot alligator. This tragedy marks the 25th fatal alligator attack  in Florida since 1948.

On the same day Jimenez was killed, a 74-year-old Fort Myers woman was bitten on the leg by a 6-foot gator, which she beat off with a garden hose. “I just whacked him right in the snout with the nozzle,” she told the News-Press. “After that, he took off.”

Sounds like it's time for an expanded gator hunt in Florida. They can use the meat to feed the homeless, the illegals, and the prison system. The skins can go to the prison system for them to make their shoes with. Hardly any waste and the over population of gators gets reduced!
