Mississippi alligator hunters set multiple new records with beasts over 700 pounds caught
MISSISSIPPI alligator hunters have set new records when a 726 pound beast was found.
However, just an hour earlier a record had already .been set when a 723.5 pounder was found.
Sixty minutes after the alligator had been certified by officials, the newest record was broken by a UPS driver Dustin Bockman in Claiborne county.
It was well over 13 foot long.
"He broke all the lines we could put in him,” Mr Bockman said.
“Finally put a snare on him and got him up high enough and put a shot on him. All in all probably took us four and a half hours to catch him from the first time we saw him.”
