You don’t have to have your eyes checked. That is a gator that measure almost 15-feet long. Outwest Farms shared this photo with the caption: “Lee Lightsey and I had the pleasure of doing a guided gator hunt this morning and killed the largest gator we have ever killed in the wild!! He measured out at just under 15 foot!! Congratulations to Chris and Derek on their monster!!!”
“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,” Godwin said. They spotted the gator Saturday as it surfaced about 20 feet in front of them and Lightsey shot it, Godwin said according to Fox13.
The image has now gone viral. The original post has been shared almost 3,000 times and has more than 2,200 Facebook reactions. The meat will be donated to charity and the alligator will be mounted for display at hunting shows and expos.
Godwin said the photos of the monster gator were taken with their cell phones and uploaded directly to Facebook and weren’t photoshopped. “It is hard to believe that something this big exists in the wild,” Godwin told Fox13. “Hunting is a way of life for us and we are very proud of it!” he said.
