This alligator was found between Orlando and Titusville, Florida near a house. How would you like to meet this fella in the dark? Never let it be said that we don’t grow them big in Florida .. Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator- guess he wouldn’t cooperate…

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 their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations. “I didn’t believe it,” Charles Rogers said. Friday they realized the stories were true, if anything, understated. Florida Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. In the photo above, Joe Goff, 6’5″ tall, a game warden with the Florida Parks and Wildlife Department, walks past 23-foot, 1-inch alligator that he shot and killed in back yard of the Roger’s residence.
