Florida Trapper Catches Monster, 14-Foot Alligator in a Residential Lake

Florida Trapper Catches Monster, 14-Foot Alligator in a Residential Lake

Lane Stephens, a trapper for the state of Florida, caught this 14-foot alligator from a residential lake. It's one of the biggest gators to ever be caught in the state.

There is no shortage of gators in Florida. That is why the young ones end up in swimming pools on TV. They are the Canadian goose of the sunshine state. Any predator 14' long would take a child if hungry enough and given the opportunity.
I wonder which cajun sauce goes best with gator tail and some garlic bread?

I'm not a fan of large toothy reptiles, so I'll say congrats to Lane for an awesome trophy.

A poodle has the potential to bite and injure a child.
Several years ago I killed a 12-foot gator in Okeechobee. It was big but, like my Vancouver Island black bear, nobody labeled it a nuisance.

Hotwheels,
A poodle could just as easily be a child playing in the water. It's not what the gator has done in the past, but what it had the potential to do.

Hotwheels, is that a "nuisance" bear in your photo?

It's a shame Lane had to kill all those big gators. They help keep the poodle population in check and discourage wakeboarders from roiling lakes.
Besides growing to frighteningly large proportions, what did that 14-foot gator and its 11-foot friends do to earn "nuisance" status?
