- Hunters killed a huge alligator accused of killing cows on farm
- The terrifying beast weighed more than 360 kilograms
Lee Lightsey and Blake Godwin caught and killed a mammoth alligator accused of snatching cattle at Outwest Farms in Okeechobee, Florida, USA.
According to the hunters, the predator was hiding in a cattle pond and attacked cows when they came to drink water.
The giant animal, which weighed more than 360kg and measured more than 4.5m, was shot dead and dragged out of pond with the help of a tractor.
The farm owner claims he made the photos of the impressive catch and uploaded them directly to Facebook without editing.
Mr Godwin, who works as hunting guide for 18 years, said: "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. It is hard to believe that something this big exists in the wild. Hunting is a way of life for us and we are very proud of it."
The hunters are now plannig to hand over the alligator's meat to charity organisations and taxidermize its body for display at their hunting shows.
