Some of us love nature.

Some of us don't love nature all that much either.

We prefer it stays in its place.

An alligator walking down a busy city street is not our idea of a good time, thank you very much.


But we know that's exactly what happened in Fort Myers, Florida thanks to Chelsea Brinson, who took a video showing just that. The alligator strolled down McGregor Boulevard.

Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.
