Fresh off his fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico, Governor Rick Scott toured Florida Fish and Wildlife and applauded their work. The trip was part of the rookie governor’s plan to visit every agency and department to better understand their mission and their budget. Scott took questions from Wildlife employees and spoke about his plans to one day shoot an alligator.

“Anything that we can do to promote what you do, well do it. I like, I love fishing, I’ve never shot an alligator but I’m receptive to that…or hunted alligators is a nicer way of saying it,” said Scott.

To shoot an alligator you must have a state license and a special gun. Only 50 permits are awarded every year.
