"The alligator will be killed so authorities can perform a necropsy, which is common procedure to make sure the animal won't attack again."
This after an alligator bit off the arm of an 84 year old woman in Florida. I thought that killing the animal was sufficient to keep it from attacking again, but I was wrong. So, remember, if you ever have to kill an animal that attacks you, but sure and do a necropsy so that it can't attack anyone else.
Maybe doing autopsies on executed humans would keep them from murdering again,
