It’s alligator hunting season in Florida, but apparently some hunter is taking it to another, gruesome level.
Two alligator bodies – both beheaded – were found floating in a canal, another found stuffed in a container of some kind. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the discovery, but there’s not a lot for them to go on.
It is legal for Floridians to kill alligators; however, the state limit is 2 per year. They are also required to tag the gators tail, dispose of the body, and report all alligator harvests, so clearly none of these laws were followed in these particular kills.
Florida’s alligator hunting season ends November 1, so hopefully these grotesque excuse of “hunters” are brought to justice before they can do something like this again.
