September 9th marks the opening day of alligator hunting in Georgia. The state estimates somewhere around 250,000 gators reside there and that’s too many. Landowners are happy about the hunt.

By lottery, 500 permits were issued out of more than 3,000 applicants from 29 states. In Florida, where their gator season is in full swing, when licenses went on sale June 15th it took only 4 hours to sell out. Florida estimates well over one million gators roam that state.
