Dealing with Nuisance Alligators: What You Need to Know
If you’re dealing with nuisance alligators – perhaps one that has claimed your yard, pool, patio, or driveway as its stomping ground – it’s important to understand the proper steps to address the situation. Here’s what you need to know:
Contacting the Nuisance Alligators Hotline
Your first course of action should be to contact the State of Florida Nuisance Alligator Program for alligator removal. The program operates a Nuisance Alligator Hotline, which you can reach at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286). By dialing this hotline, you can report the presence of a nuisance alligator, and the program will dispatch a state-contracted nuisance alligator trapper to manage the situation promptly.
Alligators Inc.’s Role in Nuisance Alligator Management
It’s important to note that Alligators Inc. does not partake in state-sponsored nuisance alligator trapping. Our focus lies in other aspects of alligator-related services and products. When the state-contracted trappers are dispatched, they are compensated by the state and gain ownership of the captured alligator. Subsequently, they may choose to sell the alligator to a farm or licensed processor for further gain. Unfortunately, in this scenario, the complainant or property owner does not receive any compensation.
While Alligators Inc. may not directly assist with nuisance alligator removal, we are here to provide a wide range of other alligator-related services and products. From alligator farming to the production of luxury goods, our expertise and passion for alligators are unmatched. Explore the world of alligators with us, and discover the unique offerings we have available.
Remember, when dealing with nuisance alligators, it’s crucial to contact the State of Florida Nuisance Alligator Program for proper management and removal. They have the expertise and resources to handle these situations safely and effectively.
