I heard this roar/growl and looked around and the biggest gator i had ever seen was trolling the cut right where you go into the creek. Like any coward would do, i turned the boat and headed straight back to the truck. even pulled the paddle out to help my trolling motor hey, fact is, that Water Mocassin looks a little bit like a gator and if that was a male gator and it was mating season i didnt want to tempt him LOL
    LOL! You made me think of this.

LDWF officials killed the mamma and her baby. I'm not sure why they were killed, but I understand they'd become a nuisance in the neighborhood. i wish they'd just tranquilized them and taken them further up the Corney and turned 'em loose.

    ok, i watch Billy the Exterminator also anyway, I've seen them catch some that they have to kill. I believe it has to do with the size more than anything that decides which ones to put down and which ones to relocate.

    There's no shortage of alligators these days. I really with they'd open-up the season a little more. I'm tired of "donating" $5 every year to enter the lottery hunt.

    Good grief. Why would alligators being in a lake make you unable to or not want to ski there? There are THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of gators in the Ross Barnett Reservoir and Pearl River in the Jackson area, and it is the biggest recreational lake in the state. Especially up on the river, where most people ski, boat, fish, and camp if you shine a light along the bank at night you will see hundreds of little glowing eyes looking back at you. Its pretty neat. Yet, there has never been one instance of a gator attacking a human. Not one. They are just part of the scenery.

    As a South Louisianian, I can confidently say this isn't true although I'd have to say that gators flee more times than not.

    13.5 footer is an old gator. How big was her baby? I've never experienced a momma gator with only 1 baby that she protected once it was big enough to be on its own. I assume that it was big enough to be own its own because most LDWF agents I've known will release a baby gator. As far as not relocating it, the only reason I could think would have to be for territorial purposes and that they couldn't find a place far enough away that would prevent it from returning. Could also have to do with the fact that the LDWF agents weren't versed in capturing a gator, so it was easier to kill it. Or maybe they just wanted some gator meat and to try to sell the hide. If the smaller gator was a larger gator, I wonder if maybe the 13.5 footer might not have been a male and the other a female getting ready to mate.

    Re: For those of you who visit Caney and swim and ski....

    I remember as a child of about 6 or 7 years going fishing on Live Oak Plantation just outside of Abbeville. It was my uncle, dad, older brother and myself in two bateaus about 12 ft. and the gators would swim right up alongside the boat. It really freaked me out. When I was older my uncle and I would go crabbing in the marshes by the locks leading out to the Gulf. I lost count of the number of alligator holes I would fall in. I had to chuckle when watching Swamp People the other night when one of them said that the gators stay away from the saltwater. I wanted to tell him, go take a ride in Rockeffeler Refuge and take the canals to the gulf. You'll find out otherwise.
