Gator Removals At Disney Rise After Toddler's Death

There are so many alligators around the popular resort in Orlando that it could easily create its own gator farm.

Panels have been installed on the beach where the boy of two years died in 2016.

More ammunition today for critics who have complained that Disney World came up short a year ago warning visitors about the number of alligators and the potential life threatening consequences.

Disney erected a lighthouse statue in his honor, while his parents launched a foundation in his name.

"It is our hope that through the foundation we will be able to share with others the unimaginable love Lane etched in our hearts", the family said in a statement. There was no sign advising of the presence of alligators.

And that much is clear.

"When a contracted nuisance alligator trapper removes an alligator, it becomes the property of the trapper". Ten days after that, March 14, seven were caught.

State wildlife officials say the number of alligators removed from the Walt Disney World property in Orlando, Florida has rocketed in the months following the killing of Nebraska toddler by a gator that pulled him into the water. But the measure only works as a deterrent to tourists, since alligators can climb over barriers. That's when the captures grew. Any trapper who removes the animal can keep it. "In most cases, the alligator is processed for its hide and meat, which is the primary source of compensation for their services", explained commission spokeswoman Katie Purcell.

Disney World is a massive resort complex that includes several theme parks, water parks, hotels and golf courses.

Alligators don't just stick to freshwater and the prey they find there.
