Pete the Friendly Alligator

A family in Homestead, Florida had a young alligator they rescued and nursed it back to good health. Once they released the alligator, it never left the family's home area. The alligator always came to visit the family and was very friendly. They named him Pete. The family said Pete protected them from other alligators. If Pete wasn't around, they wouldn't get into the water because it meant there was probably another alligator nearby.
Pete is now dead. They're not exactly sure what killed him. This video is from 2012.
