“Thanks” to Dr. Alan Knapp & Susan Kosterman for being responsible for the execution of my family friend Max. All because you think you’re above the law and let BOTH of your dogs off leash in a park where signs are posted everywhere about the leash law and alligators being present. And when you’re wrong… you bypass local authorities like a snake and cry straight to Tallahassee to brown nose the Governor and his team to get you the OK to kill this creature that only maintains his territory. As soon as your dogs went out of bounds into his realm, they are considered FAIR GAME. Your dogs lost their lives due to your carelessness and my dad lost his life long friend due to your selfishness.
A big thank you to everyone who tried to save this animal’s life. Your effort meant everything to me and my family. Feel free to share and let these two IDIOTS know how dumb they really are.
