what_now: That alligator gator stretched 11 feet, 6 inches and may have hatched when Richard Nixon was president, said Phil Walters, the licensed trapper called out Wednesday afternoon to corral and kill the beast behind the Rivertree Landing Apartments off Sligh Avenue, east of 56th Street.The thing is older than me, but hey, let's just shoot it. There's no reason to keep it alive! This is Mickey's State!Sometimes, Florida. I really hate you.
AirForceVet: If you read the article, they had little choice other than to kill it. Gators that big are too dangerous to relocate. Gator isn't a Bambi.
"This outcome displeases me greatly."
Suckmaster Burstingfoam: 11'6"?!?That's one mighty tall alligator.

StrikitRich: FTA: Walters said he had no choice but to shoot the huge alligator. State law prohibits him from relocating an alligator over four feet and it would be too dangerous to try, he said.
StrikitRich: Guess these trappers have never watched 'Gator Boys' move big alligators down in the Everglades.
Ryker's Peninsula: What do you call an alligator wearing a vest?An investigator.

Stan Lee's Ghost: If you head just north of that apartment complex up into the Morris Bridge/Turkey Creek/Dead River area of the Hillsborough a 16-18' footer nicknamed El Diablo can be seen most weekends by Kayakers
