Monster Alligator Bites The Dust
Professional hunter Lee Lightsey said the 15-foot beast was one of the biggest he had come across in 18 years and required a tractor to move it. The largest alligator he had previously killed was just over 13 foot long.
"We were on a hunt for hogs and happened to come across the gator," Lightsey told reporters. "Although this animal is huge I was not that surprised it existed. But what really drew our attention to this animal was the fact that it seems to have been feasting on the cattle on my farm, because mutilated body parts were found in the water. It was a monster which needed to be removed." Lightsey says he plans to get the alligator stuffed while the meat will be donated to charity.
