Gators can be found north of Bryan/College Station, Texas, North Louisiana and further north of the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia.  A huge one was caught in Lake Eufala, which borders SE Alabama and SW Georgia (article).

One should watch where and when they walk.

Those who live in those areas know to be careful around ponds and rivers. Perhaps he wasn't from there? During all those years I was on South Louisiana I saw plenty of gators and never got close enough to a shore for this to even happen.

Actually he was a resident in the gated community. An associate of mine that’s resides there, said the victim, 75 yoa was weeding, when the attack happened.

I've been on numerous swamp tours and have been in the swamp on foot. If you're careful you don't have to worry about Gators. It's when you get careless, that tragedy can happen.

Growing up we had a swamp at the back of our property with a pond, but I never saw gators. Everything else, though.

Gators are in Huntsville around the Tennessee river. Get caught slipping if you want to.

A bull bison gored a man near Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park, officials say
By Raja Razek, CNN
Published 12:48 AM EDT, Wed June 29, 2022

(CNN) -  A Colorado man required medical treatment at a hospital after he was gored by a bull bison at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, officials said.

The 34-year-old man was walking with his family on a boardwalk near the Giant Geyser at Old Faithful on Monday when the bull bison charged at the group, according to a news release from the park.

.....

“Stay more than 25 yards (23 m) away from all large animals – bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, moose, and coyotes – and at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves,” officials warned. “If need be, turn around and go the other way to avoid interacting with a wild animal in proximity.”
