BarkingUnicorn: This path would make a big, ideal basking spot for gators, water moccasins, pythons, etc. They may even dig under it to incubate their eggs. Their populations will rise. Populations of bikers and joggers will decrease.Nope, don't see any problems.
drewbob21: Don't they have Panthers in Florida still? I'd be ok with a few Florida retirees feeding an endangered species.
Agent Smiths Laugh: [images.pictureshunt.com image 356x474]Fans of this proposal are lining up.
Fark Me To Tears: Zombie DJ: So....destroying wildlife to see it.AM I TAKING CRAZY PILLS!?Oh, stop it. The path is supposed to parallel the Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) where it runs across the Everglades. If you've ever been there (I've lived near both ends of the affected area), you would know the path is not a bad idea. It would certainly be safer than walking or biking along the shoulder of U.S. 41. As for destroying wildlife... give me a f*cking break. Everything that is done in that area these days takes the wildlife and the ecosystem into consideration. A 14-foot wide path isn't going to be allowed to "destroy wildlife." Why don't you go down there and take a look at it for yourself?I think it's a great idea. I would love to hike that path when they get it done.

MayoSlather: Gators usually aren't aggressive towards humans so it shouldn't be a problem. I've been within a few feet of them many times while kayaking and they really could give a shiat that you're there. I've also walked by them near lakes and they just scurry away when you get close. Typically only if fed do they come up to people looking for food.
H31N0US: I miss Florida. As I sit in North Jersey, chained to my well paying job (well actually my wife's job...I'd ditch mine in a heartbeat), snow falling...I long for a simpler life full od sunshine, beer, and water.

jotamono: I've yet to see an alligator be aggressive( I live in central florida), if the weather is nice enough for a jog, they tend to just lie there sunning themselves.
gja: People eat chicken wings, I eat people wings.Pass the dipping sauce please!
scruffynerfherder: The local newspaper is called The Mullet Rapper?

I was scuba diving today off Jupiter. I couldn't help but think of you poor basterds up there. It was 77 and sunny.
KidneyStone: Great idea!Anyone thinking OMFG GATORS WILL EAT YOU is simply ignorant.
loonatic112358: So it's basically a buffet for the gators?Now an elevated trail above the swamp, and possibly fenced in, and screened over might work
Kittahinaborx: I can see it now "Come Jog, Walk, Run, or Bike our lovely 75 mile trail through the Everglades. If the alligators don't get you, the pythons will, and then there is the elusive skunk apes that might try to mate with you as well. Happy times, happy trails."
Third rate whore in Toronto: Oh sure, why don't we pave the whole farking Everglades. We talk wildlife but do little to help them. We've overrun the Earth and still insist that Nature conform to our needs. We pollute everything we touch and continue to do it. farking fracking and all that. It will come to bite us in the ass, if not us than our children.
