A Lakeland, Florida, man reportedly nabbed a 719-pound alligator by shooting it with a crossbow and wrestling it down.
The man, identified as Clark Woodsby in the Lakeland Ledger, said he called the alligator with an electric call, then shot the 12-foot gator with a crossbow.
That man was hunting Nov. 23 south of Bartow with Glen Grizzaffe, a licensed trapper. According to the landowner of that property, the gator was a nuisance and needed to be removed.
