A Seven-Foot Alligator Passes In Front Of A Golfer. However...

The golfer, Steel Lafferty, who seemed to be too focused on hitting the golf ball, did not appear to mind the gator as it went along its merry way across the golf course. Amazingly, the gator did not seem to mind Lafferty as well — they both just minded their own business.

Steel Lafferty was at ChampionGate Country Club in Osceola County when the reptile tried to gatecrash his game on Wednesday.
The large alligator sneaked-up on the professional wake-boarder moments before he was about to hit the ball.
Despite being yards away, Laffety walked up and sent the ball flying over the creature who seemed relatively unfazed.
Lafferty told Fox35 that the alligator then walked around 100 yards before disappearing into a lake by the green.

What are your thoughts on this one?

Fatalities are rare, but are attacks (that don't get reported) more common? From that list, it seems that gators tend to attack older people and young kids - the most vulnerable of us (and probably those who couldn't get away fast enough).

Alligators are pretty timid, and rarely attack people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fatal_alligator_attacks_in_the_United_States lists about 1 death per year. I went with a walk with a friend in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in the FL panhandle. She was used to walking around with gators lazing there, then getting active in the evening for their hunt. I ... was not. Even knowing that gators are pretty timid.
