A friend in Louisiana has some lakefront property... it's not that great or big, but the lake creates a sort of "corridor" between their bank and an island directly opposite, about 50 feet across. It's also pretty shallow.

The problem my friend has is that their neighbor, who lives further up this little corridor either draws alligators to the area or actually releases them into the lake, and then feeds them and encourages them to nest there. The alligators are not contained -- they are allowed to come and go as they please, so the neighbor can't be nailed for "owning" alligators or actually get caught, and the only way they enter the property is through the corridor... the result being that now my friend has alligators lurking in front of their property and coming into their yard.

There have never been alligators in the area before. A call to the good-ole'-boy's Sheriff's office stated that not only can my friend not do anything about it, but they're not allowed to shoot the alligators. This is an enormous safety issue as my friend has small dogs, and USED to have ducks and geese (hahaa.. used to... we just have noooo idea where they went). Obviously, any ideas about owning goats or chickens on this property has just flown out the window. The area used to also draw cranes, a few deer, foxes, wild geese, and wild ducks, but doesn't any longer. There is also a boat launch less than 100 yards from the location, and myself and other family members (children included) used to bank fish -- but this is no longer safe as the water is extremely murky.

Because it is illegal to shoot these alligators (we're not talking babies anymore, either -- 9+ foot long gators and greater), and the local law has offered no assistance in having them removed, is there any other discourse?

Shoot the gators when there are no witnesses.
