COW KILLER: Massive 800lbs Alligator Eating Farmer’s Cattle Shot

Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 7.20.22 PMThat is a whole lot of lizard! Are anti-hunters ok with this since alligators aren’t cute?

Two hunters at a Florida farm say it’s the largest alligator they’ve ever captured in the wild: nearly 15 feet long.

Lee Lightsey, the owner of Outwest Farms in Okeechobee, and hunting guide, Blake Godwin, discovered the monster alligator in one their cattle ponds while on a guided hunt on April 2. They believe the gator had been feasting on the farm’s cattle.

“We also discovered the remains what we determined to be cattle in the water. We determined that he was in fact attacking our livestock as they came to drink,” Godwin said. They spotted the gator Saturday as it surfaced about 20 feet in front of them and Lightsey shot it, Godwin said.
