Colossal 12Foot Alligator Caught Walking Across Florida Highway

first_imgBroderick Vaughan, a Leon County gator trapper, told the Naples Daily News that the animal was the third biggest alligator he’s ever captured. Sadly the alligator was hit in the snout by a semi-truck, so it was very stunned and confused when authorities arrived at the scene.Vaughan was able to capture the large alligator, tape its snout shut, and use a hoist machine to load it onto his truck. A couple of days later, the creature had to be euthanized because its skull was crushed by the semi-truck that collided into it.According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, alligators are more aggressive in June because it’s right in the middle of their mating season. Alligator courtship typically starts in April and mating takes place in May or June. During this time, female gators create nests of debris, soil, and vegetation, and deposit an average of 32 to 46 eggs in late June and early July.More on With Knife Stuck in Its Head Found Swimming in Texas LakeNasty 8-Foot Alligator Takes Bite Out of Police Patrol Car in Louisiana Florida Man Comes Home, Finds Alligator Waiting at Front Door Georgia Man Catches Gigantic 14-Foot AlligatorHunters Catch ‘Monster’ 13-Foot Alligator in Mississippi River A giant, 12-foot alligator was spotted taking a late-night stroll across a busy Florida highway and unfortunately, it received major injuries from its trip.On June 3, the massive creature, which weighed 463 pounds, wandered onto I-10 in Tallahassee, Florida around midnight, CBS Miami reported.
