Chris Nix, an Alligator Program Coordinator with the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries, says they get a tremendous amount of nuisance alligator calls a year.  If at all possible game wardens will try to relocate the alligators, but if the gator has been fed at all it will need to removed and killed. 

Nix reminds people to never feed alligators.
