Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries Alert

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen, golfers and tourist in general to take extra precautions and keep alert for alligators while in the wild.

They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on their shoes or clothing to alert but not startle the alligators unexpectedly. They also advise the carrying of pepper spray in case of an encounter with an alligator.

It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of alligator activity. People should learn to recognize the difference between small young alligator droppings and large adult alligator droppings.

Young alligator droppings are small and contain fish bones and possibly bird feathers. Adult alligator droppings have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.

For those of you who think we have gators roaming freely in our backyards, I thought you might enjoy this joke!
