FLORIDA (WWSB) -- Over 50 alligators were rescued at one small central Florida farm Tuesday after authorities with Wildlife, Inc. Education and Rehabilitation Center found the animals were abused and neglected.

According to authorities, the farm was abusing and neglecting the alligators and as a result, will have their license revoked.

The gators were moved to a large alligator farm and will eventually be introduced to breeding ponds after they recover from the neglect they've suffered.
