Seven alligators have choked to death on swimmers so far this year.

After the tragic deaths of seven alligators in Florida this year, the Department of Wildlife Preservation has begun placement of signs at key locations around the state to warn alligators that their feeding areas may be infested with human swimmers.

Pressure to enact such safety measures had been building for the past few months, and reached a critical mass with the news that another alligator had choked to death on a person last week. Compounding the problem is an increased rate of obesity, which can make some people even more of a choking hazard for the hungry reptiles.

A spokesperson from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has suggested chopping up human swimmers as a solution to the problem.
