Any update on the condition of the 6 year old that was attacked by an alligator at the Pacifica? Saw something about it on the Mexican News.

We have crocodiles here NOT alligators!!!

I haven't seen a follow up today, except a warning from the officials to stay away from them, especially females with babies, and to watch your children.

Here is a link to yesterdays story: https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/6-year-old-in-serious-condition-after-crocodile-attack-in-ixtapa/

No alligators here. Only cocodrilos. They’ve been here millions of years and it is ridiculously simple to coexist with them.

According to today’s news the boy is in stable condition and recovering. Unfortunately the cocodrilo now finds herself fenced in with brand new fencing, making it likely she will see humans as a threat instead of neutral cohabitants of this world. Human stupidity was the cause of this incident, not the presence of cocodrilos. The parents are at fault for letting their child play in an estero where all locals should know cocodrilos live.
