In Orlando, FLA: During a Florida hunt, a ‘mon$ter’ alligator weighing 780-pound was s|[ew and h@uled out of water with a farm tractor. But the alligator does not beat the state record of length as said by a wildlife official on Wednesday.
According to Tony Young, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the longest alligator that was caught in the wild in Florida was measured to be 14 feet 3-1/2 inches. Also, the heaviest gator from the wild that has set the state record is 1,043 pounds, according to the commission’s records.
Local media reported that the animal that was k!lled on Saturday in a hunt at Outwest Farms was assumed to be around 15 feet long.
Hunting guide Blake Godwin told local news the alligator was found in a pond and in the same pond was seen some cattle drinking water. Afterwards, the hunters shot the alligator as they believed that the gator was att@cking cattle. A farm machine was used to pull the gator out from the water.
Outwest Farms even posted a photo on Facebook describing as a “mØnster” to the alligator which was later taken down from Facebook.
$550 to $10,000 is charged by Outwest farms when found hunting alligators up to 13 feet and longer.
