Alligators Killed: Great, We Can Point and Shoot!
This 13-feet and 5.5 inches, 723.5-pound male alligator held the record for the heaviest alligator ever to be killed in Mississippi…
The previous weight record was 697.5-pounds, according to the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks. The state’s alligator hunting season, sponsored by the department, ends on Sept. 9. Hunters must apply for permits and attend alligator hunting training courses if they are selected through the department’s lottery.
