How about your learning to shut up and leave our native species alone for the rest of us to enjoy? 😡😡😡

I will miss Larry and wish him well. When we had visitors who simply "MUST see an alligator while in Florida", Larry never let me down. I did not feed him, and am sorry he won't be here for perhaps selfish, personal reasons. Now if we could introduce him to the trouble makers who think they are divinely-appointed inspectors, -------------------------------- Oh, never mind, I have to go print more phony certificates for my phony comfort critter.

Default Larry

His removal was featured on Orlando TV news. With apologies to Joni Mitchell: "They took Larry Gator and put in a gator museum and charge all the people $50 just to see him."

If only you had thought to make a phony comfort animal vest for Larry to wear, you might still have him around.

I don't miss him. His persona didn't reach out to me. I don't miss the buffalo either.

To each their own.

Lucky Larry... Moved to a bigger lake. Better food. Lady gators galore.
If it wasn't for his notoriety he would have been eventually removed and killed, like the rest his size.

Fear will get you every time......the only instances of issues here is when people walk their small pets along the ponds. Where humans become an issue with any wildlife is when they feed them...bird feeders, bread for the ducks and meat for the gators or when they put them in a defensive position trying to get that one picture. Then we blame the wild animals because none of this could be our fault. We can coexist with nature, but our behavior makes it difficult.
