Do you have a warning about alligators?
Alligators are a natural, normal, and important part of wetlands along the coast of South Carolina. Usually docile creatures, these reptiles can become aggressive as an unintended result of being fed by people. Once the alligator associates people with food, it must be killed. Remember: A fed gator is a dead gator. For this reason, the S.C. Dept. of Natural Resources can fine up to $2,000 and imprison anyone feeding, harassing, or approaching an alligator.
