Here’s What People Are Saying About the Parents Whose Son Was Snatched By a Gator in Disney World

It didn’t take long for the attention of the public to switch from the horror of learning that a two-year-old boy was snatched by an alligator at a Disney resort to placing blame.

And just as in the case of the boy who fell into the gorilla enclosure, the blame appears to be focused on the parents.
