Default Villages Gators

Does anyone know whether The Villages had most of the gators removed from our ponds? While I didn’t see one every day in the past, now I seldom see one. I don’t think they just voluntarily moved out. I always enjoyed the gator sightings.

I think they get a Summer Break and visit their relatives and friends over at the Wildwood Gator Preserve !

Crud. I thought somebody was starting a University of Florida sports fan club.

My other half saw one on a diamond path on the way to golfing yesterday morning. There were two villages officials cars on either side of it...waiting for someone to come, I would imagine, to relocate it. If you golf, I think you'd see one from time to time sunning or swimming. I doubt we have a lack of them here as this is FL. The saying goes, if there's a body of water, more than likely there are gators in it.

...I'll have to agree with the OP.


It does seems that there are less around this year...even on the golf courses.

There is a 6-7 foot gator in my lake. I see him most days. I believe the "policy" is to remove them only if there is a complaint.
