Mississippi hunters ‘catch two record-setting alligators
- by The Associated Press
During the first weekend of Mississippi’s alligator season a hunting party held the weight record for an alligator taken in the state. But the record only lasted about an hour.
Beth Trammell took a 13-foot, 5.5-inch long, 723.5-pound alligator early Sunday in Issaquenna County in the Yazoo Diversion Canal. It broke the previous weight record of 697.5 pounds.
