Worth it or wasted: Marketing alligators

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Gators are a common sight in Florida. It's legal to farm and hunt them for meat and skin and the Department of Agriculture wants to get the word out to potential customers around the world.

Is the money spent worth it or wasted?

Here are the results of our text poll:

63% wasted

37% worth it
