Louisiana has been on high alert when it comes to alligators ever since August 30th. Remember when the body of a 71-year-old man from Slidell, Louisiana was recovered from the stomach of a 12-foot, 500-pound alligator? My fear of alligators became very real after reading the countless articles talking about the disappearance of the man.

So many people wondered what caused an alligator to attack a human.

Wildlife officials stressed the importance of not ever feeding a wild animal. They claim that if you feed any wild animal, the animals will get comfortable around humans instead of being scared of them.

Many experts suspect that the man from Slidell was feeding the alligator leading up to the fatal attack.

The fact that the remains of a full-grown man were found inside a 12-foot alligator just freaks me out. Many folks from Louisiana have seen this news story and were quickly reminded to quit feeding alligators. Sis you know there are about 2.5 million alligators in Louisiana? The only previous fatal attack we had heard of dated back to 1774.

Although it is very unusual for an alligator to try and eat humans, let it be known these gators are cannibals and will eat what they want when they want and now we have proof with a video that has left me very unsettled.

A new video out of South Carolina has me mortified.

A video, shot by Taylor Soper, posted on Twitter shows a massive alligator eating what he claims was a 6-foot alligator. The worst part is the giant alligator ate the other one whole. Soper shot the video in his parent's backyard in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
