Daytime pics of the gator. He's 53 inches (134.62 cm)
01 October 2007 Spotted another Gator.
02 October 2007 And now he's been hooked. Just waiting for the trapper to come get him.
02 October 2007 Well....I learned a valuable lesson today. It's a Federal Offense to trap a gator.
It doesn't matter if the trappers give you the hook, and tell you that
you can do it. If you call into the Florida Wildlife Commission,
and tell them you have a gator on a hook, they will personally pay you
a visit. Since this was my first time, I was given a written warning.
The Official Violation was Harassing an Alligator I guess swallowing a 4 inch hook is considered harrassment. Hey, I wasn't the guy that tied the gator up with electrical tape.
06 October 2007 ...and now I have another one in the pond. Maybe he'll just be passing through.
