time to acquire a taste for alligator

My title puts a silly spin on a very serious current issue.

Looks like they're having a bit of an alligator problem in Florida. The first couple of paragraphs of that linked article are frightening:

Friends of a 23-year-old woman found her inside an alligator's mouth on Sunday

But it's the last line that tells the real story:

...alligator nuisance complaints have more than doubled in the last 20 years, to more than 18,000 a year. [A report] says the reason is simple: More and more housing is being built right on top of alligator habitats.

So, who is the problem here? Alligators or us?
