    This picture was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Wiess about 90 miles north of Birmingham , Alabama !

    The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radio's here is a transcript of their conversation.

    'Air1 have you a visual on the gator, over'
    'Approaching inlet now, over'
    'Roger Air1'
    'Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth... moving in, over'
    'Roger Air1'
    'It's a Deer!'
    'confirm Air1.. did you say Deer?, Over'
    'Roger.. a Deer in its mouth.. looks like a full sized buck.. that's a big gator, were gonna need more men, Over'
    'Roger Air1..can you give me a idea on size of animal, over'
    'Its big 25 feet at least, please advise Gator is heading to inlet.. do I pursue?, over'

    That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!
    The deer was later found to be a mature Stag and was measured at 11?feet!
    Are you ready to go skiing on Lake Wiess ?!
    If you ski at the west end of the lake -- try not to fall.

    This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg , Alabama near a house! Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator - guess he wouldn't cooperate...


    Anita and Charlie Rogers could hear the bellowing in the night. Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.

    'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said, but they realized the stories were, if anything, understated.

    Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, 6'5' tall, a game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator (8.5 metres) he shot and killed in their back yard.

    Here's a picture of a crocodile from down under. Doesn't look like it would move too fast. It's kind've portly.
