Can't we even have a safe Disney Park?  Who on earth expects their
two year old to be killed by an alligator?  I am mad  at Mickey Mouse now.

Alice, I believe that your concern is shared by many.  Keep in mind that the natural habitat was disturbed.  Wild animals don't change their habits to accommodate modern man.  A habitat disturbed has repercussions.  I hate all reptiles and would be the last person to show sympathy for them.  Trying to understand the "why" is normal in any tragedy.  It is not a question of which tragedy is worse.  An airline crashing taking the lives of many, the massacre at a pub or a single death by an alligator.  To the parents (loved ones) numbers don't matter.  If we were to count the number of auto deaths on a single day across the country the numbers may exceed that of a single tragedy.  The number of deaths on a single day due to the lack of medical care is not considered.  There are viruses that take the lives of many. Prevention continues to be our concern knowing that there is no guarantee that precaution will succeed.  Having said that, caution should be exercised no matter what safeguards are in place.  The exceptions are becoming the norm.

I agree with Abe. When a parent loses a child, that loss is just as great no matter what the cause of death, but I also share Alice's concern. With so many possible risks we all face daily, there are some areas, and a public entertainment park is one of them, where we expect to feel safe, and where safety should be guaranteed.

Disney should "build a wall" and keep alligators out.

I don't think that building walls is the solution.  Unfortunately, I don't have a solution to offer that would satisfy conservationists and at the same time keep people safe.  Common sense along with caution may be the best bet.

Common sense would have  warning signs that eating, hungry alligators were present and to beware
of them.
