Several months ago we wrote about wild life in associations.  In that article we discussed concerns with liability if owners are injured by animals in a community and what association can do to address the growing number of wild animals in urban communities.  One of the cases we discussed was a Georgia case where the court found an association liable for the death of an 83 year old woman by an 8 foot alligator because the association had a policy of removing alligators that were aggressive or more than 7 feet long.  Good news!  The Georgia Supreme Court overruled the State Appeals Court and found that because woman was aware that there were gators there was no further obligation by the association.  So what does this mean for your association?  Post notices of wild animal presences (or any dangers for that matter) in conspicuous locations.  And, advise your owners to tell guests of the dangers as well.
