they would tell you if it is not posing an immediate threat, it stays. They will not incur the expense to capture and relocate; and it must be relocated at least 15 miles away from where it is captured.
That was the story in Surf City last week when an 8 footer took up residence adjacent to some retail and restaurant businesses. Ultimately, the property owner incurred the cost to have it captured by professionals and relocated to the Holly Shelter area.
Throw stones at the HOA if you will. The fact remains they can not do anything not authorized in the governing docs. And there's nothing in any I have ever reviewed which deals with wildlife. Domestic dogs and house pets are covered. Gators are not; may be due to the fact that lawyers write up these documents and don't want to endanger a close relative.
