Haven't there been a few people EATEN BY  ALLIGATORS down your way in the 
few weeks?

In Louisiana, alligators are usually the  eatees.   I have several recipes.

Alligator Sauce  Piquante

4 pounds alligator meat
1 tablespoon paprika
1 stick of  butter
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3 medium onions, chopped1 
1/2 bunches  onion tops
1 green bell pepper
2 cups water
4 cloves garlic,  minced
cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons finely sifted white flour
salt and black pepper
3 cans of cooked whole tomatoes (Rotel  tomatoes)
1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
4 bay leaves
1 stick of butter
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound andouille (fat, smoked sausage)

Boil alligator  meat for 5 minutes to remove fat. Rinse meat in clean water. 
Brown meat in black  iron pot. Remove meat and clean pot. Place flour and 
in black pot. Cook,  stirring constantly until as dark as chocolate. Add 
onions and bell pepper. Cook  until dark brown and soft. Add tomato paste 
cooked tomatoes and simmer for  30 minutes. Add garlic, meat, seasonings, 
andouille and simmer 25 minutes.  Add butter and cook for another 40 
minutes. Serve 
over rice.
