LOOK: 700-Pound Massive Gator Found in Farmer’s Ditch
The internet was calling it fake, but wildlife experts who were on the scene have confirmed that the gator was in fact, real. It's rare that a gator can get this big in Georgia because they have certain months you can gator hunt.
Officials got a call from farmer who said that there was a massive alligator that he THOUGHT was 11 or 12 feet.
Turns out, the gator they found in an irrigation ditch was 13 feet 4 inches long weighing 700-750 pounds. It had a chest girth of 57 inches, too.
Officials say that the alligator had several previous injuries — including what appeared to be old gunshot wounds — when he was found. Due to his poor conditions and old age, the team decided to euthanize him.
