Please Do Not Feed The Alligators!


Do Not Feed Alligators - Clip Art from Publisher


A couple asked what could be done about a woman they had seen feeding the alligators from the bridge over the Addison Canal by the Nature Center. These alligators are young gators and deserve to live a long life. Feeding them is like signing their death certificate. Alligators who are fed will lose their natural fear of humans, become aggressive and will have to be killed.  It is against Florida law to feed alligators and violators could be fined so please do not feed them.
