Florida Man Threatens To Feed 8-Year-Old Boy To Alligators


FLAGLER COUNTY, Florida - A Florida man is in jail after he allegedly threatened to feed an 8-year-old boy to alligators in a nearby pond.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, 28-year-old Dereck Dunn took the boy to a pond behind their home and threatened to feed the boy to the alligators. Dunn then allegedly punched the boy in the face, beat his buttocks with a belt, and pushed the boy's face into a carpet.


Flagler County Jail records show that the 5'6" man lives in Palm Coast, Florida and weighs 300 lbs. Dunn remains in custody on child abuse charges. His bond was set at $7,500.

Alligators are opportunistic predators with an indiscriminate appetite that includes fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, humans, and even fruit.
