    The pictures below were 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 radios. This 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! We're gonna need more men. Over.'
    'Roger, Air1. Can you give me a idea on size of animal? Over.'
    'It's big... 25 feet long.....at least. Please advise. Gator is heading to inlet. Do I pursue? Over.'

    This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg , Alabama , near a house. Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator. 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 the Rogers' house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.
    'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said. However, they later realized the stories were, if anything, understated.
    Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, a 6'5' tall game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator (8.5 metres) he shot and killed in the Rogers' backyard.

    There are heaps of salt-water crocs that size down under, if you hold out a piece of meat off a boat they will jump out of the water and eat it. Its like a tourist attraction thing you can do, but yeah.
