The Walt Disney Company has had more than 240 "nuisance" alligators captured and killed over the last decade at its Florida theme park property, according to records.
State records have revealed the park's constant struggle to keep alligators away from their guests in a region where the animals live and breed, occasionally crossing paths with humans.
Last week, a 2-year-old boy died after he was dragged into a lagoon by an alligator at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Critics said there were no signs warning of alligators when the tragedy occurred, and Disney has since installed signs.
Florida trapper Ron Ziemba, who trapped and killed alligators on Disney World property for five years, said: "You'll never be able to get them all.
"There are just so many canals, so many waterways. The gators travel a lot."
