  • Also, reference, the colonial period were slave owners used slave babies as alligator bait in order to catch large alligators. The term "Gator Bait" originated from this macabre practice. Contrary to written record, because Negros were considered property such as livestock, terms like "mildly harmed" during these alligator hunting events can not convey the true horrors of what Negros experienced at the hand of their white slave owners.
