Alligator Alert

with 3 comments

It’s summer time and gators are about… Do you know what to do?

Alligator Alert

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is advising hikers, hunters, fishers, and golfers to take extra precautions and keep alert for alligators while in Osceola, Polk, Brevard, and Orange counties. They advise people to wear noise-producing devices; such as little bells on their clothing, to alert, but not startle, the alligators. They also advise the carrying of pepper spray in case of an encounter with an alligator.

People should recognize the difference between young alligator and large adult alligator droppings. Young alligator droppings are smaller and contain fish bones and possibly bird feathers. Adult alligator droppings have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.
