Cape Coral Man Arrested for Killing Alligator in his Yard

Paul Trimble

Cape Coral resident Paul Trimble hooked an alligator in a canal behind his backyard, and is in jail for killing the animal. Apparently, he beat it to death with a bat and a shovel. When questioned by officers, he admitted to the offense, and said he had done it before, because he didn’t know it was illegal. Unfortunately for him, as they say, ignorance of the law is no excuse. He’s facing a felony charge for killing an Alligator, and could end up facing animal cruelty charges as well, based on news reports.
