IT IS ILLEGAL TO FEED ALLIGATORS
Feeding of Alligators and Crocodiles in Florida is illegal. Statute 372.667 makes it a misdemeanor to feed Alligators or Crocodiles. Feeding of alligators causes them to lose their natural fear of humans. They associate humans with food, and if another human comes along and doesn't have food, they may attack that person (especially if it is a little person or dog).
 
Please notify the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission  if anyone observes someone throwing food into the pond to feed the alligators.
