Orlando topped the number of nuisance alligator complaints last year, according to data from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program.
Across Florida, 12,772 nuisance gator complaints came in leading to the death of more than 8,000 gators in 2016. That’s a higher number than the previous five years but not unprecedented. More than 230 nuisance gator complaints were made in Orlando. Ron Ziemba traps gators for FWC in Osceola County and thinks he may know why Orlando topped the list.
