Apr 09 2019 Senta Evans thought it was going to be a normal Monday morning but instead, when she went to let her dogs out, she got the surprise of a lifetime. FWC sent a trapper out who worked quickly to get the gator out of the water and hauled away. It is the beginning of alligator mating season so gators might be venturing out more to find a mate. a florida couple said they were stunned when they looked into their backyard pool and spotted a gigantic alligator at the bottom. The couple summoned a trapper from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The trapper told them the animal would be relocated to a more suitable habitat. The FWC said alligator mating season is beginning, bringing the reptiles out into public in greater numbers.
