Mississippi boaters reel in massive, one-eyed gator

National

(WFLA/CNN Newsource) – Mississippi alligator hunters recently hooked one massive gator.

John Ladner and his buddy Derek Stiglet were in a marsh when they thought they spotted a log.

Turns out, it was a 1-eyed, 12-foot-long, 477 pound alligator!

Their boat was too small for the animal, so a friend came to help with a larger one.

It took 3 hours to get the gator into the boat.

When the friends got the gator to shore, they had to use a tractor to get it out.

Ladner said the gator gave them over 100 pounds of meat.
