You know that was a story on the Orlando news station. NBC I believe. And Facebook picked it up as well. Or many people on Facebook.

They don't relocate gators in The Villages to a remote area.
Sadly, I've heard that they call a trapper which results in a dead gator.
I hope that isn't Larry's fate.

If you read between the lines you see here that the State kills the nuisance gators. They do give their reasoning here.

Hopefully Larry won't be charged for anything! Until he approaches humans he should be fine but you can bet there will be someone stupid enough to get to close and then file a complaint. I wish people would leave them alone and keep there grandkids and pets away from the ponds,

Me too. They were here first.

I understand the reasoning why gators aren't relocated.
As far as I know, although he is a large gator, Larry just minds his own business and is not a nuisance gator.
So I hope that is not Larry's fate. Although with the media attention, he will probably be killed.

Remember the buffalo. Now only a few remain way out of reach.

In my humble opinion, we have a duty to protect our wildlife.

The buffalo herds weren't wildlife though. I think they were owned by The Villages developers, and relocated.
They were formerly located in many areas that are now prime commercial properties. One area was to the east of Bob Evans on CR466.
I miss seeing them. However life moves on, and commercial property is valuable. Now there is an apartment building there instead of buffalo.
