How dumb is this? Might as well skip the ludicrous comments that follow the video and article, though.

So, we now finally know how fire spitting dragons came about.

People like these ones are why restrictions on drones exist.

Gators are incredibly tough creatures on the outside, and are able to withstand great punishment (legs being ripped off, broken jaws, tails being bitten off, etc.), but I seriously doubt the gator will survive this.  Their stomach is designed for bones, skin, and even sticks.  I've seen them eat styrofoam coolers, cans, plastic bottles and do ok, but I suspect the gasses being released by the battery could prove fatal, and if it ignites it is definitely a goner.  I hope FWS goes after her, arrests her, and makes an example of her stupidity.

I've sure others have already reported this, but just in case they haven't, I have sent this video to FWS asking them to investigate and arrest her, and then proscecute her.

Actually, I doubt the gator will be harmed from eating the drone. I have seen pictures of stomach contents from alligators that had larger batteries (probably from discarded/junked stuff in the bayous) as well as other “dangerous” objects. They are tougher than you think.

I think she should be fined and banned from ever using/owning a drone again.

And she calls herself an “lnfluencer”! I hope she doesn’t influence anybody to do what she did here.

Hi,

And that's why drones get banned from everywhere.

Have Fun,
Jeff
