Gary Morse of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the US state agency has taken the unusual step of authorising an alligator hunter to shoot and kill the 10ft long reptile.

'Alligators regularly use the drainage system to travel. When you are trying to target a specific gator is really difficult to catch it,' Mr Morse said.

Residents reported on Monday that the alligator ate a mixed breed dog who was running free near the canal. Then, the alligator was reportedly glimpsed the next morning near Tony's Meat Market.

But when Charles Carpenter, the alligator hunter, arrived on the scene, the culprit had disappeared.

Mr Morse said some people have been reportedly feeding the renegade gator, making his capture even more complicated, because he is eluding bait traps.

'He's not hungry and he's got a lot of places to hide.'

Mr Carpenter told the St. Petersburg Times he plans to use a hunting rifle or semi-automatic pistol to take down his prey.

'He's good at not getting caught,' he said.
