This alligator was found between Athens and Palestine, Texas near a
house.  How would you like to meet this fella in the dark?  Never let it
be said that we don't grow them big in Texas.

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 their house, but they
dismissed the stories as exaggerations.   "I didn't believe it," Charles
Rogers said.  Friday they realized the stories were, if anything,
understated.  Texas  Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the
beast

Joe Goff, 6'5" tall, a game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department, walks past a 23-foot, 1-inch alligator that he shot and
killed in their back yard.

There is a pair of cowboy boots, shoes for church, a new holster with belt, briefcase and a bomber jacket!

He's big, wherever he came from; probably not Palestine.  You never know, though.  I've never seen an alligator in my part of East Texas until ......  Two weeks ago my brother and I took a 9'2" gator out of our 8 acre lake.  I've got no idea where he came from.
