A five-person Alabama family crew of gator-hunters killed a 1,015-pound alligator this weekend, and let me tell you, this gator is huge.
Here is a full account of the gator hunt, which to be honest made me feel a little queasy, although the state's wildlife department says hunting helps with population management and preventing attacks by keeping the animals scared of humans. I hope they are at least going to eat it and use the skin.
