Actually, gators are pretty well protected, like Johno said, until they attampt some unscrupulous activities...Like attacking someone.

We used to have two or three, now we're down to only this one. He's fairly new, though...All these little lakes around here are interconnected so they travel around.

One of the others we had did a number on some old lady walking her dog next to the lake....The dog didn't make it, and the lady almost didn't either...Of course, she thought it wise to try and save little Foo-Foo...

Despite the numerous "Private Property - No Tresspassing" signs, We felt it best to rid the lake of the gators for fear of some stupid lawsuit...A quick call to a local trapper netted us a nice souvenier skin and a Barbeque lunch with gator tail.

It's not hard to have one considered a neusence witch gets it tapped and killed. You can also apply for a permit to hunt them once a year awarded by a lottery. I have had several friends do that.

What's wrong with the following phrases......

"the gator certainly didn't bother us when we would swim or jetski in the pond. "

"Unfortunately some nearby homeless people shot our gator one night. Kind of scary that the homeless people are armed here in Houston."

Daze,

How about a picture with your head in his mouth like they do the Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is a cool pet, Just glad we do not have any up here. Even though there have been reports of one in Lake Norman the last two years.

Keep him down there!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dock

You're absoutely right.

Dock, you do not want your head in there as all of there strength is closing the mouth. If you catch one, you can hold his mouth closed with one hand.
