TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will discuss proposed changes to the state's nuisance alligator trapper program during a meeting in Tampa.
The meeting will be held on Wednesday.
A report outlining the proposal for commissioners suggests that the state sign contracts with several trappers instead of assigning a single trapper to cover a county or two.
The state provided $480,500 for the nuisance alligator program in fiscal year 2012-2013. A nuisance alligator hotline receives more than 13,000 calls each year.
The commission is also expected to talk about Florida panther habitat and gopher tortoise recovery efforts.
