GRAPHIC VIDEO: World Record Alligator Brought Down… Hunters Horrified When They Look Inside
In August of 2014, the Stokes family from Camden, Alabama, inadvertently broke a world record by legally killing and then reeling in a gigantic 1,011.5-pound alligator.
When it came time to skin the gator, they found the fully intact carcass of an adult female deer inside it. But that’s not all. There were also two complete squirrel carcasses.
“What you had here was a big alligator that was warm and really cranked up and running efficiently,” Dr. Kent Vliet from the University of Florida told The Birmingham News. “Even though that deer would have provided enough energy for it to survive for two years, it just couldn’t pass up those squirrels.”
Alligators do not usually eat squirrels, but apparently this one had quite the appetite.
While checking out its inside was no doubt horrific, the process of capturing this 15-foot-long beast had been pretty awful itself.
