How many times has the average American hear the myth, whereby “man is the only animal that kills, for killing’s sake”?
Lions kill other lions, for killing’s sake.
Japanese macaques do it.
Now we see alligators doing it.
Something tells me that many other species do it, as well.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Media General) - The body of a 2-year-old boy who was taken by an alligator at a Disney resort in Florida has been found, the local sheriff said Wednesday afternoon.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said dive teams found what they believed to be the remains of the child within the immediate area where the boy was last seen. Demmings said sonar equipment and other means were used to find the body.
The child, 2-year-old Lane Graves, is the son of Matt and Melissa Graves of Elkhorn, Nebraska.
Demings said the child's body was found intact in the water. He said there is no reason to believe the body is not that of the missing child.
The family said they appreciate the prayers of everyone and the job done by law enforcement to recover their son so they can move forward.
The sheriff said he believes the child was drowned by the alligator.
