The Florida State Department of Fish and Wildlife is
advising hikers, hunters, fishers, and golfers to take
extra precautions and keep alert for alligators while
in Osceola, Polk, Manatee, Orange and Dade Counties.

They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such
as little bells on their clothing to alert but not startle
the alligators unexpectedly.

They also advise the carrying of pepper spray in case of
an encounter with an alligator.

It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of
alligator activity.

People should recognize the difference between small
young alligator and large adult alligator droppings.

Young alligator droppings are smaller and contain fish
bones and possibly bird feathers.

Adult alligators droppings have little bells in them and
smell like pepper spray.
