Just an FYI...the gators are fine once the ice melts.

Unfortunately, not all of the alligators survived the cold snap at the Red Slough Wildlife Management Area, a 5,800-acre (2,300 hectares) refuge in southeastern Oklahoma that's managed by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, U.S. Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

I understand that some do get caught and die. Normally the ones who get caught under the ice and can't snorkle up. This winter was especially hard on all wildlife.

I have driven through Oklahoma and it was nothing but heat and dirt. There were mountains near Texas. I never saw wetlands or alligators. Saw some Buffalo tho. This article taught me something today. I never knew there were alligators in Ok and that they snorkeled.
