And finally… gator aid

People who antagonise alligators will face tougher penalties under a new law.

The South Carolina House of Representatives has passed a bill to raise penalties for those who also try to feed the animals.

Law, H. 3538 increases the minimum fine against a person who tries to “feed, entice, or molest” an alligator to $500.

“We don’t want to get anybody hurt in this state,” Rep. Bill Hixon, a North Augusta Republican, said.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
