ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Florida teen whose arm was ripped from his body by an 11-foot alligator is blaming the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for not properly controlling the alligator population.
"It's a problem that needs to be dealt with," victim Kasey Edwards said. "The alligators -- the population needs to be brought down."
Edwards said he knew the canal was infested with alligators before taking a 2 a.m. swim at Nubbin Slough, a canal near Lake Okeechobee on Sunday.
"They said they pulled out over a dozen 12-foot alligators and they spotted 150 in that area," Edwards said.
