Giant Alabama Alligator

By | June 19, 2009

“The picture to the left was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Wiess about 90 miles north of Birmingham, Alabama. The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radios; following is a transcript of their conversation:

“Air1, have you a visual on the ‘gator? Over. ”
“Approaching inlet now; over.”
“Roger, Air1.”
“‘Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth. Moving in; over.”
“Roger, Air1.”
“It’s a deer!”
“Confirm, Air1! Did you say ‘deer’? Over.”
“Roger. A deer, in its mouth. Looks like a full-sized buck . That’s a BIG ‘gator! We’re gonna need more men. Over.”
“Roger, Air1. Can you give me a idea on size of animal? Over.”
“It’s big… 25 feet long…at least! Please advise; ‘gator is heading to inlet… Do I pursue? Over.”

That has to be a HUGE ‘gator to have a whole deer in its mouth! The deer was later found to be a mature stag and was measured at 11 feet! Are you ready to go skiing on Lake Wiess ?! If you ski at the west end of the lake, try not to fall!
