Evicted

This guy got evicted from my marina last week. One of the apartment dwellers called the "Nuisance Alligator Man" who caught and carted him off. He was hauled out from the slip next to my boat. Pretty good size, about 5' although a foot or more of his tail was missing, probably bitten off when he was smaller.
I'm sure his replacement will be around in no time.

I don't claim to know much about gators, but it doesn't seem like the tail (or missing parts) are what you have to worry about.


Glad he got evicted before someone got eviscerated.

They taped his jaws closed before hauling him up onto the dock

This is a continuous problem.
Until they open a public season or tag program it will just continue to get worse

They all should be evicted from Florida.
If people knew that gator meat was an aphrodisiac they would be under control quickly.

I donít have a problem with management of the population but with the invasive species in Florida we need to be very careful that there is no unintended consequences

The gators don't seem to be doing much about those snakes.

It probably is known for that in China!

Greetings,
Mr. S. I can't quite make it out but is that a gator or a croc? Gators I don't mind that much, it's crocs I'm a bit leery of.

That is a gator. Look at the rounded nose.
Crocks have pointed noses.

We got gator poachers on the St Johns. Nothing like being awaken by their lights scans at night. There is a gator hunting season in the fall but it only last a week or two.

I spend a LOT of time in the water and hope to never meet up with a gator. I'll take a shark or pissed off fisherman any time.



Fortunately we don't have a lot of them in salt water, but they DO get there.
