    Earlier this year, my neighbor contacted this program to report two large gators from the slough running next to the new Pleasant Grove Elementary. The slough connects to Bayou Grande. He saw them in the neighborhood just south of the school and took pictures. The response he got from the hotline was “Well, it’s Florida. There’s alligators everywhere.”

    A good-o boy red neck will get the job done. Might not have a PHD in gator critter getter, but I’ll just about bet he would know how to get those gators.
