The World-Record Stokes Alligator

What is 15 feet, nine inches long, weighs 1,011.5 pounds
 and used to reside in the Alabama River?

It's Wilcox County's own world-record Stokes Alligator, caught last August 
by Mandy Stokes and her team from Thomaston. The team included 
her husband, brother-in-law and his two teens. The gator is on display
 at the Central Alabama Farmers Co-op in Selma through July.

Two years ago, the co-op hosted the state-record Fancher Alligator, 
also caught in Wilcox County, which you can see HERE.

That's one amazing gator. Think I would keep my distance even if it is a mounted display. Good sign find.
