For those of us living in South Florida, we do occassionally deal with an alligator sighting. Alligators can show up in the canals and lakes that are located throughout the area.
It is important to keep our neighborhoods safe from these creatures. When you do spot an alligator, you can report the sighting to FWC Alligator Management Program
. The phone number for easy reference is: 1-866-392-4286.
In order to remove a gator from an area, there are certain criteria that must be met, but the best bet is to call the hotline and report the gator.
