they are everywhere in south florida and they get quite a bit of press

some of these can get up to 4-5 feet long and 15-20 lbs (godzilla-like)

and why hasn't anyone in the film industry done a horror series on a giant mutant iguana? (hey japan)

As the article notes, the gator was trapped, killed and cut open. Mr. Meth's foot and hand were found inside. Apparently the animal attacked the man's body after he'd died.

Who would drop off a tweaker in swamp? And why? 

I don't know if 450 pounds and 12 feet is big for a gator, but that's 450 pounds and 12 feet too much for me. Cannot stand beasts like that.
 
I knew the gator was dissected, I was just speculating - based on the stories of salt water crocodiles in northern Australia that use Mandrax to relax their prey.  I was guessing that Mr. Meth was dumped there after having the bad manners to die in someone's car/trailer/flop-house.  They may have thought it would be easier to drop him out in the glades than to try to explain a dead guy to the cops.  It is Florida after all.

well there's no way around the fact that it is a very large critter

they don't get much longer 14-15 feet maybe and that's probably rare

but they gain more girth and can get quite a bit heavier (esp males/bulls)

if you're ever in south florida try and make a trip to shark valley (winter is the best time)

rent a bike or take the tram on 15 mile loop through the glades

about halfway there's a tower you can go up into and see some whopper dinosaurs in the pond/lake

it's hard to judge just how big they are, but they're usually noticeably larger than most you'll see on the trail/loop

Florida man found eaten by alligator actually died from meth overdose, officials say


The Florida man who was found partially eaten by an alligator earlier this year died from a meth overdose — not a gator attack, as was speculated, according to autopsy results.

Was the alligator tweaking when it was found? Then again, it may have been a DEA gator

Bizarre. On the old site, I simply places the copied url between url brackets and it worked fine.
 
 It works fine in previews, the substitution is not made until the post is actually submitted.  It's not just URLs either.  You can't actually get two consecutive minus signs to appear anywhere in a post.   It's fine with a space between them "- -", but put them together and it comes out "—"(this actually was two minus signs every time I previewed it). I've tried single quotes, double quotes, using character codes, and every other standard technique I know but to no avail.  There is just no way to get minus sign minus sign to print anywhere on this site.  It doesn't cause much of a problem with normal text and in fact is kind of a nice feature there, but it kills URLs.  You just have to notice it and create an alias for the URL.

It  seems to only happen when there are two hyphens (or 2 minus signs) in the URL - they get re-interpreted as an m-spaced dash.  It's similar to how some word processing programs interpret two dashes as an m-dash or turn three consecutive periods into an ellipsis.  It would do that on the older site too but , like P_SOB said, it's uncommon; most URLs don't have those problem characters.
