900 lb, 13-foot Alligtor (captured/killed)

Thoughts on this? A 900 lb, 13-foot gator, that's damn big. I think it's jacked up. Should've captured, took your pictures then released the thing.

I don't know how to tell age but I'm pretty sure this gator is pretty old.

    It's a threat to the people in that area. Small gators are a threat which is why there is a one month permit for hunting them. It's population control.

    Imagine your kids outside playing and coming across a 900 lb gator, you would have killed it to.

    Of course, but I'd feel bad in a way because the gator was just doing what a gator does and here I came along and killed it; because from my humanly perspective it was a threat. Its that between a rock and hard place thing, human life vs animal life. What to do? Depends how buddha you are I guess lol

    I don't think it's right to kill an animal. But if you're going to eat it, it's harmful to you, it's in your damn garbage cans all night..... I would have no feelings toward killing it.

    Obviously a gator is just doing it, but it doing what it does is harmful to people. I could see if it was in a deserted area swampland with no one, but they are right next to towns, and playgrounds, and things.

    It also comes from where you were born and raised at. Like me, most of my childhood was in the middle of the city. Then from about 15-18 I moved in with foster parents who lived out in the country. From those three years I got a better understanding as to why the dude hunted and shot raccoons and stuff like that. There's a show that just came out on history channel called swamp people thats like 4 episodes in, maybe my "its okay" attitude comes from that because it explains it in ways I can't. All walks of people are down there hunting gators and the only one that really got under my skin was some Italian guy who wanted to go shoot a gator and see it die just so he could see how the skin he bought was obtained.

    I said look how proud they look. Would it be too much to ask for them to feel some sort of remorse for having to destroy something magnificient such as a 13 foot life form? If it's for survival, do what you gotta do... but you don't have to take a photo of it with a shit eating grin on your face.



    Oh and by the way... did you even watch the video? They went LOOKING for gators! Wtf is wrong with you man? It's like you just look for reasons to defend these people out of pure spite.

    It's a cultural thing. People in the southern portion of the U.S. have been around gator hunting since they were children, to them the bigger the catch the more fascinating.

    Yea, back during slavery some gator hunters would tie black babies to a hook and dangle them overnight from a tree limb as bait for the gator.

    They're not allowed to now.... but what if they were? You think they wouldn't? lol anyone that takes that much enjoyment out of taking life probably wouldn't give two shits about doing that.

    Wow.

    Okay, I'll admit that I've NEVER heard of this until Chike mentioned. Sounds too crazy to be true, like an urban myth or somethin. I was hoping it WASN'T true.

    So I Google it.....all the links cite the same deleted Youtube vid......so far, so good........sounds like myth.

    Then I stumble across this:

    10142_0687_1_lg.jpg

    Oh no.

    Google "Little African Licorice Drops" and I find these:

    1909_Postcard_Quincy_Florida-Alligator.jpg

    1940sc_Postcard_Alligator_01.jpg

    Wow. Those sick evil fucks actually did that shit. Used black babies as bait. God Damn.

    And White People thought it was funny for the longest. That last postcard with the cartoon? From the 1940s.

    It does seem a bit ridiculous for her to take such joy in killing something. I mean I'm not anti-hunting so to speak, but I just don't see how taking the life of anything animal or person can be such a joyous event.

    Personally, I dont believe in killing just to kill. This chick's not even from the south--she's from Massachusetts. She went down there specifically to hunt and kill an alligator. Just a total disregard for life. The story didn't say what she plans on doing with it, but I doubt she plans on taking it back to New England. Probably take the head as a trophy and that's about it.
