Two 700-Pound Alligators Were Killed In Mississippi

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water we had to provide a story like this…. In Mississippi two 700 pound alligators.

It’s only been a handful of days since the start of Mississippi’s alligator hunting season and already it’s proving to be a record breaking year.

It took Beth Trammell and her team of six people an hour and a half to bring down the 723-pound beast after it became hooked on their lines. Trammell told the Clarion-Ledger that when the alligator finally surfaced beside the boat, she screamed, “Oh, my gosh. It’s the Loch Ness monster.” After another two hours, and the assistance of a few extra hunters, the alligator was hoisted into their boat and taken back to shore to be weighed and measured, and a new, albeit short-lived, state record was set.”

Apparently this wasn’t the first big catch of the year either. Click here to read more from Buzzfeed.

2011 Was One Of The Safest Hunting Years On Record

Did you go out hunting last year? If so was it without injury? Most likely because according to the Department of Environmental Conservation, last year’s hunting season tied 2009 for the safest year on record.
