I heard this on the news this am....it seems they have found the alligator....this kind of attack is apparently extremely rare but still shocking....when they performed the autopsy on the gator they found the missing parts....gruesome !

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

I don't think it was the jogging that was dangerous, it was sitting down to have a rest, and dangling your legs over the canal that I believe was the problem.

Unfortunately here in the UK we will not be able to use the above event as an excuse not to jog,
 (except those who live near Loch Ness. :))

Monty has obviously eaten something that has disagreed with him :).
