    This picture was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Wiessabout, 90 miles north of Birmingham, Alabama !

    The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radio's........ here 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'

    'Holy Crap 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, were gonna need more men, Over'

    'Roger Air1..can you give me a idea on size of animal, over'

    'Its big, 25 feet 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. This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg, Alabama near a house! Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator - guess he wouldn't cooperate...

    Anita and Charlie Rogers could hear the bellowing in the night. Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.

    'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said, but they realized the stories were, if anything, understated.

    Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, 6'5' tall, a game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator (8.5 metres) he shot and killed in their back yard.

    That gator can indeed *make* a few sets of big boots.

    I don't think the gator is going to fit in the back of that pick-up truck. (see crane picture above).

    I feel sorry for the deer. He was probably getting a drink of water on the side of the lake when Mr. Gator showed up and ruined his day.

    I think it's PS. The head is different colour from the body. As well as one of the legs.

    That guy is "only" about 12-15' long, IMO. The size of a deer can be deceiving, most are about the height of a big dog. 28' would make it larger than even a saltwater croc and those are enormous.

    This crocodile is 20' long and looks much bigger than the one hanging from the hoist.

    Wild gators are protected animals. I can't imagine why a "game warden" would need to shoot one that was minding its own business. If that critter killed and ate a deer I doubt he would have been hungry again for a long time.

    I agree that it's hard to judge how big it really is from photos.

    Sounds like the local game warden, he hit a deer, and banged up his car pretty badly.

    I cannot BELIEVE that guy turns his back on that croc and casually rummages in his rabbit pail.

    It's still a pretty big gator with a deer in its mouth. The exact size and location are, of course, wrong. Snopes, however, does confirm that at least the first picture is real. It kind of reminds me of a dog with a bone.
