13The decreasing numbers

The numbers of alligators have decreased substantially in the 20th century due to the overhunting and deforestation but efforts were made for their conservation in the 1980s which has resulted in increase in their numbers in the southern states of USA. This can easily be called as a unique story of quick recovery.

14Their population needs to be managed

Brent Howze is of the opinion that the population of the alligators needs to be managed as they can be very harmful if their numbers are not kept in check. Population control for alligators becomes more necessary if they are found near human habitats.

15Georgia’s DNR criticized

The social media users slammed DNR, Howze and his team badly for putting the alligator down. People were asking who they are to take this decision about the alligator who survived for 50 yrs because he remained far from humans and as he came in contact with humans, he lost his life. However, Brent Howze and his team felt that it was the best decision for the animal as it was old, ill and injured and there were no chances of him recovering.
