Massive gator, that appeared to be dead, was seen wrapped with a rope and tied to a vehicle traveling along Interstate-95 in Brevard County, Florida
On Saturday, a motorist in Florida observed an alligator that was restrained to the back bumper of an SUV while they were travelling down the interstate.
As the truck moved along Interstate 95, a rope appeared to be wrapped around the big alligator’s snout, body, and tail, giving the appearance that it had passed away.
Karen Kress, the person who took the photo, informed NBC 6 South Florida that it was taken on Interstate 95 in Brevard County. “I’m 99% certain that what I saw was an actual dead alligator.”
The statewide alligator hunting season in Florida begins on the 15th of August and continues through the 1st of November. In order to hunt alligators within the state, one must first obtain a permit.
According to one commenter on the picture, who wrote, “You can see the yellow gator ‘tag’ tied to his tail,” the enormous alligator appeared to have been harvested during the hunting season.
According to the most recent data available from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, almost 7,900 alligators were taken down by hunters during the shooting season that took place in the previous year. The length of the alligators that were taken from their habitats ranged from about three to approximately 14 feet.
According to estimates provided by wildlife specialists, the state of Florida is home to approximately 1.3 million alligators of varying sizes.
