Shannon Sullivan tweeted photo of sign telling workers how to respond to questions on alligators at park, after two-year-olds death
A Walt Disney World intern has been reinstated after she was briefly fired for tweeting a photo of a sign telling employees how to respond to questions about alligators in the theme parks waters.
Lane Graves, a two-year-old boy, was killed by an alligator at the park last month. It later emerged that his father, Matt Graves, said two alligators were involved in the attack, which occurred at the Seven Seas Lagoon.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that Shannon Sullivan was fired this week after posting the photo of the sign on Twitter.
The sign told employees that if guests asked whether alligators lived in the parks waters, they should reply: Not that we know of, but if we see one, we will call Pest Management to have them removed.
According to the Sentinel, the sign also said: Please do not say that we have seen them before and We do not want our Guests to be afraid while walking around Frontierland.
Sullivan told her bosses that was misleading, posted the photo and was fired. Disney said the sign was not authorized and was removed, and Sullivan got her job back after a personal visit from the vice-president of the park.
