Thibodaux man wants to see fewer gators

Thibodaux man wants to see fewer gators

There are too many gators! They are killing all animals in the habitat.

Also, gator farms must release 17 percent of their new gators when they are three feet long. That regulation should be eliminated. The tags issued for wild alligator harvest should be increased at least by a factor of 10.

All gators over four feet in length in waterways used extensively by persons for fishing and recreation should be declared a nuisance and harvested by the designated nuisance alligator deputy for that area.

People should contact the proper government department to make the regulations comply with eliminating these hazards and protecting the ecology.

Google alligator attacks!
