Don't think I'll be swimming in the Red River for a while.  I saw these two pictures taken by Heatherlynne94 who sent them to ushare@ktbs.com.  They show a gator swimming near the rocks just below the Bossier City Boardwalk on Mother's Day!!  I forgot that these reptiles do that every once in a while.

Years ago, my wife worked at Isle of Capri and took some stunning photos of a gator sunning itself on the bank near the casino boat.  It appeared to be staring at a stray cat a few feet away that was scared motionless.  Not sure what came of the poor cat.

Thanks Heatherlynne94 for your photos.
