Was thinking the same thing.
And I saw that in another news article about an animal they got rid of.
Sounds they blew it up with C4 or something.

I'm under the impression that they could have called wildlife control and had the alligator relocated. POLICE BRUTALITY!

Bet they planted a gun on it so they could kill it.

They kill animals which are deemed threats to human safety.

Cause an alligator on a road, with it's hind legs tied and mouth taped shut is a direct threat?

Uh...yeah. Like I said call animal control. This was in Florida, no? There are plenty of people there who specialize in that kind of thing. They know how to properly transport and relocate wild animals, even dangerous large ones like alligators.

Obviously the officer would first have to remove his handcuffs once the team got there. I'm not saying what he did was against the law, but I don't think it was the right thing to do.

Good idea. Let's make sure to delegate responsibility for everything so nothing gets done. I don't know what was going through this cop's head, thinking he can be proactive....

If by proactive you mean killing the animal...then I agree, I'd rather he not be proactive. Of course there was alternatives (possibly), I'm not sure about that area, and that alligators history (coming into residential areas in the past) - but anyways, it's not like the creature was charging across the street at a 5 year old, they seemed to have it well under control.

Pretty sure he did not kill the animal. Not once did the article mention death. They just captured it so it wouldn't wander across two streets to that 5 year old they mentioned. And yes, the cops did have it under control. Instead of wasting resources to call up animal control, they took a little effort to pick it up to return it to its habitat.

That was an assumption. The article did not say the animal was killed. At all. I wasn't referring to what people posted in the thread, but what the article said.

Why would they relocate it, to only have to come out and wrestle it again? Florida has a huge alligator population and there are attacks on people regularly. Setting it free would have only prolonged the threat.

After a few cuts and bruises, they managed to tape the gator's mouth shut and quiet him down. The alligator was destroyed

Why didn't they just ****ing shoot it, then?

Well obviously I'm arguing from the point that assumes it was killed.

Yes, I realize shooting is a valid way of dealing with "rogue" crocs/alligators, especially in southern states. For example:

"The American alligator is federally classified as “threatened due to similarity of appearance” to other endangered and threatened crocodilians. This provides federal protection for alligators but allows state-approved management and control programs."

and thus:

" Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas have problem or nuisance alligator control programs that allow permitted hunters to kill or facilitate the removal of nuisance alligators."

However:

" Other states use state wildlife officials to remove problem animals."

So, I find it odd that these animals are protected federally, but can be killed under state law. I also realize that relocation of problem animals has a low success rate, which is why knowing the history of this particular gator would be important.
