Nuisance alligators on the rise in Florida

With April comes the start of alligator mating season, meaning more aggressive gators on the prowl, and that’s not sitting well with residents of the Sunshine State. Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Commission says over 7,000 nuisance alligators had to be killed or relocated last year, compared to 6,700 in 2017.

A 7-foot alligator lurking on a Florida fairway didn’t throw a golfer off his game in Orlando last week.

Professional wakeboarder Steel Lafferty told FOX 35 the alligator moved within feet of his ball before he took his shot at the ChampionGate Country Club on Wednesday.

He posted a video of the run-in with a caption saying, “Golfing in Florida is just different.”

“I wakeboard professionally so I’m always in the water and I’ve kind of been around gators my whole life. There was a bit of a worry, but it seemed like he was doing his own thing so I let him go,” he told CNN.

Lafferty told FOX 35 the alligator eventually disappeared into a lake near the green.
