They get use to people then they have to be killed because they associate food with people and won't think twice about going after people looking for food.

The swamp tour boat operators use to feed them and we had a problem with gators trying to get into boats looking for food. The wild life agents put a stop to this.

I knew keeping an alligator as a pet was dangerous, but I didn't know that it was actually illegal. Did any alligators actually try to climb into any boats?

Yep they started trying to get into the boats so they changed it so that you can't feed them.
