AUBURNDALE (CBSMiami) — A Florida woman says an alligator ate her 100-pound dog. Cynthia Robinson told investigators in Auburndale, located in Polk County near Lakeland, that she was walking her 6-year-old dog, Tank, by a retention pond on Thursday when the gator attacked. Robinson says she took her dog off his leash to sit on a bench and the dog was running in and out of the water when the gator snatched it.

This is pretty common in gator country. I am surprised that this woman didn't know better. Maybe a Yankee transplant? Dogs are one of their favorite treats.

That's going to take a big gator. Back in the 60s, if dogs started disappearing around a lake, we knew a gator had moved in, they were pretty rare back then in central Fla. South Fla had a lot then, though. Gators seem to like dogs. And the ones that were 2 and 3 ft long in 1970 are 10-12 ft long now, or more.

How awful! I feel horrible for her but worse for that poor dog. He’d still be alive if not for her stupidity. Kind of like the stupid people in my neighborhood that let their cats outside and small dogs alone in the yard...the coyotes will jump a 6 ft fence...and take your pets as snacks, all day, every day.

The first thing that I did after buying my house was to fence in the back yard. Not only do I have gators in the area, I have boars and coyotes. A pair of coyotes frequent my front yard. The first thing you learn when living in the south.... beware bodies of water. If its not gators, its water moccasins. In the woods or brush, its rattlers.

I am sorry for the dog, and the woman's loss. But alligators have a remarkable appetite. Uncooked, fur, bones, head, and no complaints or preferences as to parts, cooking, or seasoning.

One look at the "body of water" ought to be enough to make one cautious, reedy, murky and a good place to lie in wait for the next meal. As a dog owner myself, I feel sorry for the owner; she made some stupid decisions that day and will have to live with them. I know I'd be devastated.

Very sad. Maybe it's time to trap and eliminate some gators. As Florida builds on every acre available, they are invading on animal territory. Pick one: houses or wild animals.

MAKINDYE-LUKULI, Uganda   — The darkening clouds are ominous for many in this urban neighborhood, promising rushing rainwaters stinking of human waste from overflowing septic tanks. As Africa faces a population boom unmatched anywhere in the world, millions of people are moving to fast-growing cities while decades-old public facilities crumble under the pressure. Sewage is a scourge for residents of this community on the outskirts of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. There are no public toilets for some 1,200 people. Mud tinged with feces washes into homes during heavy rains.

NEWARK, N.J.  — Black rag dolls that came with instructions to “find a wall” and slam the toy against it have been pulled from three stores after customers and a lawmaker said they were offensive. The “Feel Better Doll” featured instructions to “whack” the doll “whenever things don’t go well and you want to hit the wall and yell.” The president of One Dollar Zone said roughly 1,000 dolls were pulled this week from its store in Bayonne and two others also in New Jersey.

The Air Force has begun to look at whether there’s increased risk for prostate cancer among its fighter pilots. A new investigation by McClatchy shows just how serious the problem may be. The fighter pilot study was requested by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein after he was contacted by concerned veterans service organizations in 2018, according to the report obtained by McClatchy. At the heart of the Air Force study was a question of whether extended exposure in the cockpit to radiation may be linked to increased risk of prostate cancer.

Everyone can relax, the mystery of the Queens In-N-Out burger may have been solved. On Sunday, a man living in the Queens borough of New York City discovered a perfectly wrapped and seemingly untouched In-N-Out burger sitting in the middle of the street. This stood out to him because there are no In-N-Out locations within 1,500 miles of New York City. “It genuinely shook me to my core,” Lincoln Boehm, 31, initially told the New York Post. Boehm, originally from Santa Monica, Calif., said he and his wife were heading to a McDonald’s before catching their train at the Jamaica Long Island Railroad station when they found the burger.

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago White Sox employee of the month got to throw out a first pitch. And, to put it mildly, she was just a little bit off target. The rookie right-hander uncorked one of the most wayward first pitches ever when she plunked a team photographer standing close by, between the mound and first base line prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals. The ball went right off Darren Georgia’s lens, nowhere near the plate.

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is dead of an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources said Saturday. A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. The ambulance went to New York Downtown Hospital. The incident comes two weeks after Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck. The multimillionaire financier is being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

Jeffrey Epstein, the millionaire financier and accused sex trafficker, is dead by apparent suicide, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals. The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making “global warming” worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional. “The cycle is accelerating,” NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an Associated Press report. “The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing.”

Connor Betts’ 22-year-old sibling was named by authorities as Megan Betts in the days after the mass shooting, with cops releasing a statement saying relatives had lost “a daughter.” But he apparently went by the name Jordan Cofer, and identified as a male, although he was only “out” to a small circle of friends, according to Splinter News, which spoke to several of those pals anonymously.
