The 12-foot alligator's capture ended a two-week search by local and state agencies for Timothy Satterlee Sr, who had last been seen on Aug. 30 checking the storm damage outside his home in Slidell, about 35 miles (55 km) northeast of New Orleans. The attack occurred the day after Ida, one of the most powerful hurricanes ever to strike the U.S. Gulf Coast, slammed Louisiana, causing devastating flooding in some areas outside a new levee and floodgate system protecting New Orleans.

Timber production dramatically ramped up two decades ago in the Black Hills National Forest along the South Dakota-Wyoming border, as beetles ravaged huge expanses of forest and worries grew over wildfires. The beetles left, but the loggers haven’t — and they're now felling trees at twice the rate government scientists say is sustainable.
A nice paddleboarding afternoon became a scary situation for one Florida woman when an alligator came right up to her board in Silver Springs State Park, getting so close that she was able to push it away with her paddle.Vicki Baker posted the video to social media on September 8, showing the gator zooming right up next to her. Baker was sitting atop her paddleboard, trying to get the animal to leave her alone.“All I was thinking is, ‘Get your feet out of the water,’ and ‘If he bites my board, I’m done.’ I was so scared I really didn’t have time to think, just react,” Baker told Storyful.Baker took her paddle and pushed the animal away from her board, prompting the alligator to hiss at her as it retreated.Although Baker believes someone has been feeding this alligator, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission urges people to keep their distance if they see one of the large reptiles.
