Alligator suspected in post-Ida attack captured

This is one reason why you'll never see me moving to the South. I can't believe that people paddle in canoes and kayaks down there!

Could it be CN is trying to complete the replacement bridge instead of repairing old bridge sections that will be soon dismantled ?

The wildlife, among other reasons, is why you don't have problems with on the job thefts and most other irrational human activities on pipeline, and probably other construction projects in south Louisiana:
1. Most everybody on the job has a gun
2. There are usually several on the job who have done time for crimes or are hiding from the law
3. It is very easy to make a body disappear,
And:
By the way, foreigners, and that means anybody that isn't born with webs between their toes, stand out like sore thumbs.
