Mike Hartman and Larry Bressette of Bridgeport, Mich., caught several alligators last summer, turning one of them into a rug. Hartman and Bressette hunted with Tiger Godwin of TNT Gators in Jay, Florida. Godwin works for the state and hunts only "nuisance" alligators.
It's against the law in Florida for the general public to kill alligators. But Godwin has an alligator permit, and Bressette has acquired hunting licenses the past three years.
