FAQ: FWC

offers tips

on living

with gators
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission answers frequently
asked questions about alli-
gators.

What is considered a
"nuisance alligator?
Generally, alligators may be
considered a nuisance when they
are at least four feet in length and
pose a threat to people or their
pets or property. Alligators less
than four feet in length are usu-
ally not considered a nuisance
because they are:
Naturally fearful of people;
Not generally capable of
eating anything larger than a
small turtle -- they eat small fish,
frogs, and other small animals;
Too small to be a threat
to even small pets and pose no
threat to people;
Typically not dangerous
to people unless someone at-
tempts to handle them;
Common in Florida and
the mere presence of a small al-
ligator is not cause for concern,
even when they turn up in plac-
es where people may not expect
to see them such as drainage
ditches.
However, occasionally alli-

Recent alligator attacks underscore the importance of being cautious around the large ani-
mals.


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida

Two alligator attacks reported
recently in Glades County illus-
trate the need to observe safety
precautions around alligators.
On June 1, a 50-year-old Loxa-
hatchee man was treated for leg
injuries after an alligator attack
at Cabbage Woods Ranches in
northeast Glades County.


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission Investi-
gator JW Armstrong said Oscar
Sanchez Perez's dog had gone
into a pond to swim when the
alligator tried to get the dog. Mr.
Perez went into the water to save
the dog and was bitten above and
below the knee.
Mr. Perez was transported by
friends to Raulerson Hospital in
Okeechobee. He was treated and
released.


The dog escaped without in-
jury.
According to FWC, they were
unable to locate the alligator.
In an unrelated case on May
26, a trapper removed a nearly 10
foot long alligator after it attacked
and killed a dog in a canal behind
a trailer park at 3178 County Road
721 in Moore Haven.

Abrasives used in smokeless tobacco


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES The Glades County
Tobacco Free Partnership held
a meeting, June 17. Members
learned that smoking is prevalent
in Florida and nearly 21 percent
of the population smokes ciga-
rettes. This has not changed in
the past 10 years. Nearly one out
of five adults in Florida smokes.
Approximately 28,700 adult Flo-
ridians die each year from smok-


ing.
Some of the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations
that go into effect on June 22 pro-
hibit the sale of cigarette packs
with fewer than 20 cigarettes,
prohibit the sale of cigarettes and
smokeless tobacco in vending
machines, self-service displays
and prohibits free samples of
cigarettes and limits distribution
of smokeless tobacco.
Tobacco brand name sponsor-
ship is prohibited at athletic, mu-


sical, social and cultural events or
any team or entry in those events.
Gifts or other items in exchange
for tobacco products are not al-
lowed. Audio ads may only use
words without music or sound
effects. Regulations also do not
allow the sale or distribution of
items such as hats or t-shirts with
tobacco brands or logos.
The sale of any tobacco prod-
ucts to people under the age of 18
is prohibited. Any violations can

Lessons from persons with a
true vocation: Wisdom
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I worked on a boat, there were
several essential rules to observe: Buy good
parts; you'll be away from the parts store for
some time and you need to have the best if
things aren't to break down. Do preventive
maintenance; you can't afford to have an
outboard or generator "gum up" when you
are in the middle of nowhere. When you're
at the dock, use the time to make any need-
ed repairs or to replace something that may
have been neglected for awhile. Paint things
before they rust and not afterward.
The people who did such things were
true sailors; they got home after every voy-
age. Some of my ancestors and former in-
laws were farmers. They also had similar
wisdom. Buy good tools; they'll last a life-
time and take care of them. Buy a bigger
pump than the minimum you need; it will
run cooler and last longer, and you may
need a larger one some day. Fix things right
the first time; you won't have to lose time
doing the job over again. Change the oil in
your machinery; save things that can be re-
used later, you never know what will come
in handy and when.
They were true farmers; they were suc-
cessful and helped feed a hungry nation. Bib-
lically, I've read that "No man can serve two
masters (Luke 16:13, Matthew 6:24)." It's


about being faithful to your calling without
compromise or trying to cut corners when
things can come back to bite you. There is
a professional ethic that requires us to be
100 percent of what we are called to be;
Christian, sailor, farmer, teacher, mechanic,
contractor, physician, accountant, clerk, po-
liceman, parent. Chesley Shellenberger was
one hundred percent pilot; landing a plane
under the most difficult of circumstances
and pulling all of the available resources at
his command together to save lives.
Captain Richard Phillips of the ship "Ala-
bama Maersk" and the crew of the U.S.S.
Bainbridge that rescued him, were all pro-
fessional sailors when they liberated him
from Somali pirates; one hundred percent
of what they were called to be. The message
to Christians is that you also must be all that
you are called to be; and do your best.
Today, we are faced with another mari-
time crisis; an oil leak that has affected thou-
sands of people. I have listened to attempts
to stop or at least control the disaster and to
prevent the havoc it is causing to our coasts
and the people who live and work there.
My hope is that those who are involved
in reaching a solution are one hundred per-
cent committed to resolving the problem.
I've noted that different solutions have been
tried with limited success to date, and pray
that one hundred percent of all of the avail-
able resources will be applied to eliminating
this national disaster. That is the mark of
professionals; persons with a sense of voca-
tion, sense of God's calling to them. That is
your calling and mine, and theirs.


Ode to Lucky 0 Henry
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Henry was found abandoned at John
Stretch Park. He was such a lovable dog that
those who found him didn't want to send
him to animal control. Enter a search for a
home.
Herb had just lost a special friend by the
name of Lucky. He wasn't looking for a re-
placement, but when he met Henry, there
was a mutual connection.
I called the dog 0. Henry after the author
of "The Gift of the Magi." It's a story about
a couple who lived very simply, but gave
sacrificially to bless the other. The woman
cut her beautiful hair and sold it to purchase
a chain for her husband's prize watch. The
man sold his gold watch to purchase special
combs for his wife's beautiful hair. Such was
the love shared by Herb and 0. Henry.
Herb had a whole in his heart that 0.
Henry filled. The two were almost insepa-
rable. 0. Henry had an immune disorder
that required a lot of special care. Both gave
sacrificially to bless the other.
Over time, 0. Henry's name was changed
to Lucky, partly because of his circumstance,
partly because of his resemblance to the for-
mer Lucky.
Unfortunately, Lucky's condition finally
took him down. The loss was painful, but
the times of love and companionship left
their imprint. Someone once stated that God
put dogs on earth to remind us of some im-


portant truths, for on one level dogs seem to
do better at displaying Christ-like traits than
humans. Think about it. Consistently more
humble, more loving, more grateful, more
joyful, more kindhearted, and so on. Lucky
was such a dog. His life gave his master a
new step in his gate and a warm smile in
his heart.
What is it about dogs that evokes such a
positive response? Whatever it is, we know
that dogs demonstrate loyalty and obedi-
ence, and offer comfort and a sense of well-
being.
The point? Perhaps we should try a
little harder to be godly and dogly in our
daily lives. Following are several dog-truths
that Lucky shared that we might do well to
adopt:
1. Greet loved ones with wagging tail
(or stump!). Nothing is more important
than feeling loved, and there's no creature
on the planet that does it better than a dog.
The wagging tail affirms that this is where
we belong: This is our home, where we live,
where we're safe and where we're loved.
2. If someone is having a bad day, be si-
lent, sit close by and nuzzle gently. We all
have bad days. That's why we need encour-
agement and affirmation. When we are de-
pressed, we know that it takes only a quiet
word, a gentle touch to bring us around.
Words are not always needed, or even help-
ful. A gentle nuzzle will do wonders.
May I never let my dog be a better Chris-
tian than myself.

Flavored Tobacco Products 'What you need to know'


Tobacco companies have long denied
they are targeting youth with their flavored
tobacco products, but in fact a recent poll
by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
found that one in five youth between the
ages of 12 and 17 had seen flavored tobacco
products or ads, while only one in 10 adults
reported having seen them.
However, flavored tobacco still comes in

Major patient room renovations at Hendry Regional


By Glenda Wilson
It's been long coming, but Hendry Re-
gional is making great strides in renovating
its patient rooms.
Beginning with two rooms at a time (to
accommodate patient volume), Beatrice
Acosta, the Environmental Services Direc-
tor, has been working diligently to enhance
customer service by making room d6cor,
patient safety and comfort a priority. The
first two rooms (of twenty two) are almost
complete.
The old air-conditioner units that were
affixed to the windows have been removed
and replaced with air/heat wall units (similar
to those in hotels), giving the patient the abil-
ity to control their own room temperature.
A fresh, soft color of paint adorns the
walls.
Sink and vanity areas now have an at-
tractive mahogany look.


The door to each room has been sand-
ed and stained a mahogany color to comple-
ment the beautiful vanities.
New and improved lighting is above
the hospital beds.
The lavatories, with new commodes,
plumbing fixtures, ceramic tiled walls and
floors, and new shower curtains, provide a
cleaner and more pleasant atmosphere.
The floors of the patient rooms will
soon have a gorgeous authentic look of
wood-like laminate.
"The cost to renovate each room is ap-
proximately $5,000, but it's gratifying to
see the finished project, and it's definitely
a move towards increased patient satisfac-
tion," says Beatrice.

peacefully at home on Sunday, June 20, 2010 af-
ter a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Born May 19, 1945, to Harry and Opal Schick,
Sally grew up in Clewiston, Fla. She attended
Averett College and graduated from Florida At-
lantic University with a degree in early child-
hood education. On June 30, 1965, she married

were childhood sweethearts who shared and
expressed their love through 45 years of mar-
riage.
Sally lived and taught school in many different
places including Florida, South Carolina, Ten-
nessee, Kentucky and North Carolina. Most re-
cently she taught at Hale Academy in Ocala

touched by her patience, insight and ability to
make learning not only fun but a priority.

ing at her church in the communities in which
she lived. She was an Elder in the Presbyterian
Church, USA. Over the years she served on
nomination committees, worship committees
and taught both adult and children Sunday
school. At Countryside Presbyterian Church she
also led a small covenant group and organized
the first Vacation Bible School.
Sally was an inspiration to other cancer pa-
tients during her illness. She will be especially
remembered for her unwavering faith, quick
smile and laughter, her gift of listening and the
way she loved her family and friends with a
whole heart.
Survivors include her husband, Paul Cato of
the home; one son, W Joe Cato of Raleigh,
N.C.; one daughter, Pamelia Cato Hinterlong
and husband Jim of Tallahassee, Fla.; one sister,
Susan Martinez of Ocala; and two grandchil-

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., to-
day, June 24, at Countryside Presbyterian
Church, 7768 SW Highway 200, Ocala, FL
34476. Relatives and friends are invited to at-
tend. A reception will be held following the ser-

CCA appoints Warden for Moore Haven Correctional Facility


Experienced CCA leaders
named to top posts

CCA has named long-time corrections
professionals with the company as wardens

warden of programs at Gadsden Correction-
al Facility in Quincy, Fla., where she was re-
sponsible for education, medical and men-
tal health, food service, chaplaincy services,

Sarah Litchy, Glades County Health De-
partment tobacco specialist, and Jennifer
Robertson attended the Moore Haven city
council meeting on June 15th to discuss the
possibility of making Moore Haven's parks


Tobacco-Free. There was good discussion
with both positive and negative comments.
In the end, it was decided that more discus-
sion was needed and Tobacco-Free Parks
was put on the agenda for the July 6th, 7
p.m. meeting. Anyone who would like to
support this issue is invited to attend the
meeting.
Tobacco free partnership members and
Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT)
are concerned that some youth may equate
health hazards to cigarette smoking only.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-


trol, smokeless tobacco is a health hazard
and addictive. It is not a safe alternative.
Smokeless tobacco products contain 28
cancer causing substances, and its users
are 50 times more likely to get cancer of the
cheek and gums. Gum disease, recession of
gums and a soft-tissue lesion that consists
of a white patch that cannot be scraped off,
called leukoplakia, may result from smoke-
less tobacco use.
According to the Centers for Disease
Control, salt products, which can cause high
blood pressure problems, are an ingredient


in smokeless tobacco. Nicotine and other
chemicals in smokeless tobacco enter the
bloodstream through tiny cuts caused by
abrasives such as sand and fiberglass.
Quit tobacco phone help is available at
800-QUIT-NOW and 877-U-CAN-NOW The
Area Health Education Center (AHEC) can
be reached at 877-819-2357 or at www.
ahectobacco.com For local help call An-
gelica Pena, Tobacco Cessation Program, at
863-902-3019.

Buren said three children and two dogs were
playing in the back yard when the alligator
grabbed a dog and took it into the water.
The alligator had apparently caused prob-
lems before. Resident Carole Taylor said
she had called the State Nuisance Alligator
hotline two weeks before this incident and
didn't receive a reply.
State authorities said they had no record
of any complaints in this area before this in-
cident.
The FWC said alligators are more active
this time of year due to the annual mating
season. In 2009, the FWC received more
than 14,000 nuisance alligator complaints.
Alligator trappers were issued nearly 11,000
permits and tags and removed nearly 8,000
nuisance alligators.
State officials said alligators are typically
not dangerous to people unless someone at-
tempts to handle them. They note the mere
presence of a small alligator is not cause for
concern even when they turn up in places as
retention ponds and drainage ditches.
Alligators are considered a nuisance
when they are at least 4 feet in length and
pose a threat to people or their pets or prop-
erty. Nuisance alligator trappers work under
contract with the FWC. The sale of the al-
ligator hide and meat is their primary com-
pensation.
FWC said the state doesn't try to relocate
captured nuisance alligators because they
often try to return to their former home.
That can create problems for people or oth-
er alligators. If an alligator does return to the
capture site, recapture is likely to be more
difficult the second time.
The nuisance hotline is 1-866-FWC Gator
of 1-866-392-4286.
According to the FWC, alligators are op-
portunistic feeders and will eat what is read-
ily available to them. They prefer to go after
prey they can overpower easily. Opportunity
is the primary factor that causes an alligator
to pursue prey.
Most alligators are naturally afraid of hu-
mans, but may lose that fear when people
feed them. Feeding alligators actually teaches
them to associate people with food. For that
reason, it is illegal to feed wild alligators.
Alligator bites are most likely to occur
in or around water. Although alligators can
move quickly on land, they are not well-
adapted for capturing prey out of the water.
However, they can lunge at prey if within a
few feet of the shoreline.
Some bites are the result of accidental


collisions. When a swimmer bumps into an
alligator, the reptile may inflict a defensive
bite at whatever just bumped into it. This
sometimes happens in golf course ponds
when people retrieve golf balls.
Alligator bites can result in serious infec-
tion-therefore, victims should seek imme-

FAQ
Continued From Page 1

gators less than four feet in length are legiti-
mate problems and must be addressed. Call
the Nuisance Alligator Hotline if an alligator
less than four feet in length:
Approaches people;
Does not retreat if approached; or
Is in a location that is not natural (such
as a swimming pool).
If you have a nuisance alligator call the
Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-FWC-
GATOR (1-866-392-4286).

What happens to alligators when
they are removed by trappers?
When a nuisance alligator trapper re-
moves an alligator, it becomes the property
of the trapper. In most cases, the alligator is
killed and processed for its hide and meat.
Occasionally, a nuisance alligator is sold
alive to an alligator farm, animal exhibit or
zoo. Nuisance alligator trappers work under
contract with the FWC; they are not state
employees. The sale of the alligator hide
and meat is their primary compensation.
This system results in tremendous savings to
Florida's taxpayers.

Why doesn't the FWC relocate nui-
sance alligators?
Florida has a healthy and stable alliga-
tor population. We have about 1.25 million
alligators in Florida. Alligators live in all 67
counties, and they inhabit all wild areas of
Florida that can support them. The removal
of nuisance alligators does not have a signifi-
cant impact on our state's alligator popula-
tion. Relocated alligators often try to return
to their capture site. They can create prob-
lems for people or other alligators along the
way. If an alligator successfully returns, cap-
turing it again would be necessary and likely
more difficult the second time.
To avoid creating a problem at the re-
lease site, nuisance alligators would need
to be relocated to remote areas where they
would not encounter people. These remote
areas already have healthy alligator popula-
tions, and the ones that already live there
have established social structures. The in-
troduction of a new alligator to these areas
would likely cause fighting, possibly result-
ing in the death of a resident alligator or the
introduced alligator.

Is the American alligator an endan-
gered species?
Historically, alligators were depleted from
many parts of their range as a result of mar-
ket hunting, poaching, and loss of habitat.
In1967, the alligator was listed as an endan-
gered species (under a law that preceded
the Endangered Species Act of 1973), mean-
ing it was considered in danger of extinction
throughout all or a significant portion of its
range. The Endangered Species Act pro-
hibited alligator hunting, allowing the spe-
cies to rebound in numbers in many areas
where it had been depleted. Alligators were
down listed from endangered to threatened
in 1977, and, in 1987, the American alligator
was reclassified by the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service as similarity of appearance to a
threatened taxon. This designation does not
imply that alligator populations are threat-


ened; it's purpose is to provide safeguards
to protected crocodilians, such as the Ameri-
can crocodile and the black caiman (which
occurs in South America), by regulating the
management of alligators and the legal trade
in alligator products.

What was the largest alligator ever
recorded in Florida?
Female alligators rarely exceed 9 feet in
length, but males can grow much larger. The
Florida state record for length is a 14 foot
5/8 inch male from Lake Monroe in Semi-
nole County. The Florida record for weight
is a 1,043 pound (13 feet 10 1/2 inches long)
male from Orange Lake in Alachua County.

How many alligators are in Flori-
da?
Counting animals in the wild is one of the
most challenging tasks for wildlife scientists.
To attempt to census all of the alligators in
Florida would be difficult, time-consuming,
and expensive. We can, however, estimate
Florida's alligator population by determining
the amount of suitable habitat and the aver-
age density of alligators in that habitat. The
area of habitat can be estimated using geo-
graphic information systems, and alligator
densities are derived from alligator surveys
conducted by FWC staff. Based on this infor-
mation, we believe there are approximately
1.25 million wild alligators in Florida.

Can I use a fence to keep alligators
off my property?
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) recommends using
a standard 4 foot high fence, of either field
wire or chain link, with the bottom buried
approximately 6 inches in the ground. It's
important that alligators are prevented from
crawling under the fence at low areas. You
may also want to angle the top of the fence
in the direction of where an alligator might
approach. If you use standard pipe fence-
posts, this can be accomplished by mount-
ing angled barb-wire arms on the posts, and
attaching wire mesh or chain link to the
arms. A fence may help to deter an alliga-
tor from entering your yard, but you should
never assume that any fence will always
stop an alligator. Alligators hunt in water, or
at the water's edge. A fence that keeps chil-
dren and pets away from the water's edge
is more important than trying to keep alliga-
tors out of your yard.

How fast can an alligator run?
We know of no one who has measured
the ground speed of alligators. Actually, there
is little reason, in regards to advancing the
basic knowledge of alligators for population
management, to research this topic. Alliga-

tors are aquatic animals; they hunt and
capture prey that is in or immediately
adjacent to water. Alligators and other
crocodilians will go on land to feed on
dead animal carcasses, and they may
attempt to prey upon confined or teth-
ered animals. Although alligators are
capable of running, they use this gait
to flee threatening situations. There
is no documented evidence of alliga-
tors running after human beings. Also,
there is no basis to the myth that you
should run in zig-zag patterns to avoid
,,". a charging alligator. If you do find
* yourself in the extremely unlikely po-
sition of avoiding a lunging alligator,
you should run in a straight line away from
the alligator and it's habitat, which is where
the alligator will most likely retreat to.
