Record 800-pound Gator Killed in Texas

May 17, 2013

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said a man set a state record by killing an 800-pound alligator measuring 14 feet and 3 inches long.

The agency said the alligator killed by Braxton Bielski, 18, of Fort Bend County, is the heaviest alligator with a certified weight the group had encountered, the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday.

Bielski, who bagged the reptile in the James E. Daughtrey Wildlife Management Area, about 90 miles north of San Antonio, obtained a permit for a five-day hunt in the area from a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department drawing.
