    What!? I gave this a thumbs up! This 'guide' is not supposed to be feeding the gators because they do lose their natural fear of humans and then what? Maybe the attack and kill a person or maybe a child. THIS IS WHY IT IS ILLEGAL! Served this idiot right losing his hand too!

    And unfortunately you cannot feed them because once they are fed by humans, they again lose all fear and come upon land to search for food.

    "Wallace Weatherholt faces a second-degree misdemeanor charge for an alleged act that might have provoked the attack" Didn't know gators needed provocation.
