Due to the extreme drought in Florida, the following caution was issued:
The Florida Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers, hunters,
fishers, and golfers to take extra precautions and keep alert for
alligators while in Bay, Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Hillsborough, Brevard
and Orange Counties.
They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells
their clothing to alert but not startle the alligators unexpectedly.
They also advise the carrying of pepper spray in case of an encounter
It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of alligator activity.
People should recognize the difference between small young alligator and
large adult alligator droppings.
Young alligator droppings are smaller and contain fish bones and
bird feathers. Adult alligators droppings have little bells in them and
smell like pepper spray.
