South Florida Alligator Trappers Wanted; Need Only an Email Address and No Criminal History

Who says there aren't any jobs out there?

If you've got an email address and have managed to avoid being arrested, you can get a job in Palm Beach County (or Martin County) now.

All you have to do is capture some alligators.

OK, maybe that last part turned some people off from what sounded like their dream job.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is looking for people to work in its "Statewide Nuisance Alligator" section.

In the FWC's language, "Applicants must have a clean criminal history, no fish or wildlife law violations and a valid, working email address. Also, they must reside in the county in which they intend to work."

Well, most people would consider any alligator in their backyard a "nuisance," but nay, says the FWC.

"Generally, an alligator may be considered a nuisance if it is at least 4 feet in length and poses a threat to people, their pets, or property," the agency explains.

Sounds great. Applications due December 15.
