An Alligator Dragged a 2-Year-Old Into the Water at a Disney Resort

Orlando has been having a hell of a week. First Christina Grimmie was shot, then a possibly closeted homosexual shot up a gay club in the worst mass shooting in US history and now an alligator just dragged away a 2-year-old at a Disney resort.

Reports say a Nebraska family of five was wading in a foot of water at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa when an alligator came up and pulled the boy into the Seven Seas Lagoon. Dad tried to pry the kid from the alligator but failed and ended up with nothing but scratches on his hands. Officials estimate the gator to be 4 to 7 feet long.

There are “no swimming” signs posted around the man-made lake but no warnings that there could be alligators. Though this is Florida. Aren’t alligators like stray cats around there?

Florida Fish & Wildlife are currently searching for and trying to trap the gator. They’ve vowed not to stop searching until they find the kid which, honestly, is probably too late.
