Gator season spilling away

Monday, July 12, 2010 - 6:15pm

Fisherman and shrimpers are not the only folks in Louisiana hurting from the spill.

Alligator farmers are also fearing the worst as oil continues to creep further inland.

The industry has already taken a beating from the hurricane activity. It has caused gator farmer's egg harvest to drop 60%.

If the busted rig is not completely sealed soon, workers say the gator season may be completely closed until next year.

It is estimated that as many as 171 million gallons of crude have already been released into the Gulf of Mexico.
