The company I work for just sent out the following email to us. I made some changes to make it less revealing...
To: Melbourne-Area Employees
From: (company I work for) Security
Date: April 19, 2006
Subject: Alligator Warning
(company I work for) Security advises employees to stay alert of alligators and take extra precautions during the summer months. It is alligator mating season, so they are more apt to be seen out of the water near ponds and canals.
This week an alligator was seen accessing the pond adjacent to the north parking area at (our location). The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has been contacted, but cannot respond until later this week.
Do not approach or feed alligators, or throw food near the banks of ponds. FWC warns alligators should never be fed or enticed. It is dangerous and illegal. When fed, alligators overcome their natural wariness and learn to associate people with food.
Please dial xxxx to report sightings of alligators on any Melbourne-area campuses.
