Big Gator with a snack

Big Gator with a snack

The picture below was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Wiess about 90 miles north of Birmingham, Alabama. The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radios;
following is a transcript of their conversation:

'Air1.., have you a visual on the gator ? Over. '

'Approaching inlet now ; over.'

'Roger, Air1 .'

'Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth. Moving in ; over.'

'Roger, Air1.'

'It's a deer !!! '

'Confirm, Air1! Did you say 'deer' ? Over.'

'Roger. A deer, in its mouth. Looks like a full-sized buck ..
That's a BIG Gator! We're gonna need more men. Over.'

'Roger, Air1. Can you give me a idea on size of animal? Over.'

'It's big.... 25 feet long.....at least !!!
Please advise;
gator is heading to inlet..
Do I pursue?
Over.'

That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!

The deer was later found to be a mature stag and was measured at 11 feet!
Are you ready to go skiing on Lake Wiess ?!

If you ski at the west end of the lake, try not to fall !!!

This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg , Alabama , near a house! Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator...guess he wouldn't cooperate.

Anita and Charlie Rogers could hear the bellowing in the night. Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind the Rogers' house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.

'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said; however, they later realized the stories were, if anything, understated.

Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, a 6'5' tall game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator (8.5 metres) he shot and killed in the Rogers ' backyard.

a true picture. The rest was a created hoax. The alligator pictured was caught in Texas, and the story migrated to Florida, and then apparently Alabama. The size also grew from 13 feet to over 20. The photo gives the illusion of a gigantic reptile "next to" a mere man, but the man is not close.

If I remember correctly, the gator with the dear was true.
