Ran into this little guy in the parking lot while leaving work Saturday.

Better shot

He was a 3 footer, and would have made a tasty snack. Unfortunately, I had to call in a trapper to relocate him.
Why do you have to call a trapper?State law?
Nah...in fact when you call they usually ask if theres a lake or pond nearby. If there is, they usually wont bother coming to get em. I work on a busy highway next to a home depot and McDonalds, so having a gator, even a small one, wandering around parking lots where there could be kids or senior citizens isnt a good idea....that, and when they wander into a street where traffic is doing 50+ mph, an accident is pretty much a given.

Could you have taken care of it and had a tasty snack or is there a rule against that there?
 
Theres no Florida law against having tasty snacks. The gator poaching is where the problem comes in.

Sticking with the wilderness theme, last night I caught a pic of this little guy on my porch sneaking a drink from the cat water bowl. He would be considered a tasty snack to lots of folks in this county as well, and can be harvested year round.

I didnt kill or eat him.

LOL at owning cats.

Yeah, like Aug something til about October or November. Every year they have a random drawing for the 6000 or so gator harvest permits. They cost almost $300 apiece for Florida residents, and over $1000 apiece for non-residents. Then you only have certain areas you can hunt them in, and a 2 gator limit. Also, Alligator Trapping Agent Licenses are available for $51.50. Trapping agents are allowed to assist trappers in taking alligators, but only in the presence of a permitted trapper.
