Florida Man Catches 1,000 Pound Gator That Stalked Him For Years

A Florida man says he was able to catch an alligator that has been stalking him for years.  Corey Capps says that the gator lived in a river he often fished in his hometown of Blountstown, Florida. He also says that in just the last couple of months, every time he went fishing in the river, the gator would be stalking him. It had been like that for the last three years. Finally, he was able to spot the gator and took action.

He was taking a boat ride on the Apalachicola River with his wife when he spotted it lying on a bank and quickly called his friend Rodney Smith, who can legally hunt alligators thanks to state-issued gator tags. They were able to get the gator but couldn’t believe the size of him once they got close.

Across the top of his head, the gator measured 16 inches wide. He weighed in at 1,008 pounds and measured over 13 feet long. It took the pair some 3 ½ hours to move the animal the 100 feet to their boat. The state record for length is 14 feet, 3.5 inches, weighing 1,043 pounds.
