Persons with concerns about an alligator may call FWC’s toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286). Generally, an alligator may be deemed a nuisance if it is at least four feet in length and the caller believes it poses a threat to people, pets or property.

Alligators fill an important role in the Florida ecosystem. If you have any concerns about alligators, check out the “Living with Alligators” brochure.
