Shouldn't kill him but that is what the trapper does it for the meat and the hide. FWC would jump anyone else's you know what for killing an animal, but instead of trapping and transferring to a safe park somewhere they will kill it. It needs to be moved but not killed. Keep this in mind this gator has existed for years to get that big without killing people on that lake that is good sign. Means he or she is not as bad as some the other ones when it comes to humans.

Go Gator's! Sadly they were there first, humans encroached on their space, it wasn't the other way around. Sadly for this old fellow, if they catch it they will kill it rather than release it some place far away from humans. Then maybe they won’t get near it, since it had to be a fairly wise old gator to reach this size.
