Record Breaking 727-Pound Alligator

Two hunting parties in Mississippi both bagged alligators weighing more than 700 pounds! I think this is the reason why I never want to visit Mississippi. 

Only 3 days into alligator hunting season and Dustin Brockman of Vicksburg and his hunting party nabbed a record-breaking 13-foot, 727-pound gator on Saturday. This catch broke the previous record and only an hour before, another party caught a 723-pounder! 

Beth Trammel, the one who caught the 723-pounder said, "We had to flag down another boat down to help out it was so big," she said. 

Brockman, the one who caught the 727-pounder said it took his team a total of about 4 and a half hours to bring the beast to shore after first spotting it. 

"he broke all the lines we could put in him," Brockman told "Finally put a snare on  him and got him up high enough to put a shot on him."
