This picture was taken by a Life flight helicopter flying over Lake Istapoka,

(For those of you who are not local, Lake Istapoka is near Sebring, Fl.)
That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!
Are you ready to go fishing on Lake Istapoka ?!
If you ski -- try not to fall.

The alligator was found between Lake



Istapoka and Pinedale estates... near a house ,



Game Wardens were forced to shoot the



alligator- guess he wouldn't cooperate.



Jayne and Don Hobkirk could hear



the bellowing in the night.



Their neighbors had been telling them



that they had seen a mammoth alligator



in the Lake that runs behind their house,



but they dismissed the stories as being exaggerations.



"I didn't believe it," Don Hobkirk said.



Friday they realized the stories were,



if anything, understated.



Florida Game and Parks game wardens



had to shoot the beast...



Joe Goff, 6' 5" tall, a game warden with the Florida Game and Parks Commission, walks past the 23-foot, one inch alligator that he shot and killed in the back yard of Jayne & Don Hobkirk...
