Florida was back in the news over the weekend when hunters posted video of an estimated 13-foot long alligator going about its business, eating ducks as the hunters try to get some for themselves. Kevin Stipe told Fox 35-Orlando that the gator kept snacking on their ducks before they could go retrieve the kills.
“Ok, you’re fed, now get out of here,” one of the hunters is heard saying on the video.
According to trusted media outlet Wikipedia, the largest alligator ever killed was 15 foot, nine inches and was taken out back in 2014 by Mandy Stokes of Alabama. That gator weighed over 1,000 pounds.
I’m not an alligator analyst by any stretch, but my naked eye tells me the alligator spotted by the hunters in Leesburg, Florida is bigger than the one hauled in by Stokes. Maybe the water is deceiving, but it looks like that thing is 20-feet long.
Someone go out there and haul in this Hoover vac and let’s see if it’s a world record, which should always be held by Florida. It’s an absolute shame Florida Man hasn’t jumped in a lake and taken the world record back from Alabama.
