Re the Dec.7 letter Crocs a danger in the Keys: Let me paraphrase a common statement from park rangers: They were here first, both crocodiles and alligators. We came later and invaded their territory.
What does this Tavernier reader want? Eradication of all of our wildlife? As an avid environmentalist, I cringe when people demand simplistic solutions, such as removing centuries old indigenous animal species. Instead, residents need to use care when leaving pets and children outside.
With our constantly diminishing natural back yard, let’s be grateful for what we still have.
