Record breaking alligators caught in Mississippi

 

The movie 'Lake Placid' is a fictiuos movie about a giant 30-foot alligator that is terrorizing a small lake front in Maine. The movie was far fetched, but I wouldn't doubt the alligators caught in Mississippi could cause quite a scare:

It’s only been three days since the start of Mississippi’s alligator hunting season, yet a pair of parties have already submitted two record-breaking ‘gators, state wildlife officials announced Monday.

Dustin Brockman of Vicksburg, Miss., ventured with his brother and friend into the Mississippi River by motorboat early Saturday night and emerged with a 727-pound record breaker that was 13 feet, 4.5 inches long.

The previous weight record was 697.5 pounds, according to Ricky Flynt, program coordinator with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.

“We chased him for about two hours,” Brockman said. “Then we got a shot on him.”
