I mean, they baited him, you put out bait for an animal, then kill it when it comes?
That doesn't sound like you killed it out of defense, were they hunting gators?
It's an 800lbs gator on a farm with livestock/children. It's not a matter of what it did, but what it could do. If you brought your son home & there was a rabid dog in your living room, would you wait for the dog to bite someone before you shot it, or take preemptive measures?

He's not being harsh just plain speaking. Mac, just find a way to get the animal to pull the trigger and kill itself and Buzzard will just think how courageous it was and you can still get the meat.

By the way, Chuck, loved your post in the "suicide" thread. I felt you pretty much had Buzzard's number with that.

Ok, for one, it wasn't in the yard or the living room.
They had to bait it, so it doesn't sound like it was in the house lol

It sickens me when people move into wild animal territory then kill animals because THEY moved into that animals area.
DONT MOVE THERE.

With your thoughts we might as well wipe out all dangerous animals,
everywhere.
Or, look at a place like Alaska, where Moose / Bear have more rights than animals and live very close in with towns / cities / people and they have a very low attack rate because people there actually respect animals.
