Julianne Lowe's insight:

This artical has a ton of interesting points about, how out in the west, mostly in Idaho, Cattle and sheep farmers just let thier livestock roam around in an open area that is not fenced in. The big argument is, why are people that drive on the roads responseable for the damages of their cars, other cars, and the price of the animal if they hit the livestock that either runs out in to the road or just stands in it. The people who own the animlas love this law becuase it protects them from just about everything their animal might do. The other people don't like it because they dont want to be the ones that pay for the damages or have to clean up after the animals that are not theirs. Although this has a lot agurment is doesn't seem to be possible that the law will change soon or even in the next couple of years.

Julianne Lowe's insight:

This helps with animal science by helping us get a better understnding and view of how a foal developes in side the Womb. This knowledge can help imporve our over all understanding of the horse and other equine related animals as why. I believe they they should do this in other animals as well so we can better understand and learn in detail how baby animals develope and what we can do to improve thier help inside thier mother.

#FloridaProblems: 7-foot alligator removed from drain pipe; 14,275 nuisance alligator complaints in 2011

#FloridaProblems: 7-foot alligator removed from drain pipe; 14,275 nuisance alligator complaints in 2011 | Animal sciences | Scoop.it

MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. - Unlike the alligators of urban legend that lurk in Manhattan’s sewers, a real-life reptile took up residence in a drain pipe in an otherwise quiet neighborhood near the Ulamay Wildlife Sanctuary -- belching menacing, rumbling hisses at passers-by.

 

Since December, the alligator inhabited the grated end of a stormwater pipe off Lakewood Circle. And nearby humans feared for the animal’s health and safety.

 

Neighborhood guesstimates of the gator’s length ranged from 4 to 10 feet -- only the fearsome, scaly snout was typically visible, poking out of the pipe. Whatever its length, the toothy reptile apparently was not happy with its living situation.

 

Hours later, the reptile was removed. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers used plastic piping to coax the 7-foot gator to backpedal -- “he wasn’t at all happy about it,” spokeswoman Joy Hill described -- and the beast was captured soon afterward.

 

The alligator was relocated to a St. Johns River marsh, Hill said.

 

The FWC’s Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program received 14,275 nuisance alligator complaints in 2011, and 6,995 gators were removed...

Julianne Lowe's insight:

Alligatiors, are becoming a problem in Florida and other southern states. With them exposing them selves in unsafe envrionments like housing complexes and coming out into the road where cars travel everyday at high speeds. This alligatior in particular took his home in a residencal drainage pipe. He would not have been a big problem but the fact he was hissing at passers-by he became a serious threat to the children and elderly people with in the comunity. Thus the removal of the Alligatior was a must. People where astonished when the gator was removed and it was a 7ft gator people where scared. After the alligtor was relocated to the St, Johns River marsh. Where he could live happily with out threating any more lives.

The poor alligator was stuck in a drain pipe in Merritt Island, Florida.  Its not good for the alligators safety or the peoples  safety that found him.  After they caught him they relocated him to St. Johns River Marsh.  Near where the pipe was there was a school.. At the school they had boys that feed it hot dogs and even teased it.  Also they had girls that conducted a prayer service rigth by the pipe where alligator was at.  It was stuck in a drain pipe.

It would have been bad if anyone got hurt in the process of getting the animal out! But, luckly nobody was hurt!!
