DUE TO THE EXTREME DROUGHT IN FLORIDA, THE FOLLOWING WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED:
______________________________________________________________________________________

Subject: Alligator Safety Warning

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 Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Brevard and Orange counties.

They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on their shoes or clothing to alert but not startle the alligators
unexpectedly. They also advise the carrying of pepper spray in case of an encounter with an alligator.

It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of alligator activity.

People should learn to recognize the difference between small young alligator and large adult alligator droppings.

Young alligator droppings are smaller and contain fish bones and possibly bird feathers.

Adult alligator droppings are larger and have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.
