Subject: Florida Fish and Wildlife Dept Alligator Advisory

The Florida State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers,
hunters, fishermen, and golfers to take extra precautions and keep
alert for alligators while in Broward, Brevard, Dade, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Orange, and Indian River 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's also a good idea to watch for fresh
signs of alligator activity and be able to recognize the difference
between young alligator and adult alligator droppings.

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

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