Another gator record broken in Mississippi

That’s a lot of gator.

Mississippi’s state record for the heaviest and longest alligator has been broken once again – less than a week after the previous records were smashed.

Beth Trammell of Madison took the title for Mississippi’s heaviest alligator with her 723.5-pound harvest, only to be bested an hour later by Dustin Bockman of Vicksburg with his massive 727-pound beast.

But this weekend, a new state record was captured by hunter Dalco Turner of Gluckstadt.
According to unofficial measurements, the gator was 13-feet, 7-inches – ever so slightly longer than the current record.

Then came time for the weigh-in – 741.5 pounds.
