OKEECHOBEE, Fl may be home to one of the largest gators ever in that area. A farmer had been noticing missing cattle, and was boggled as to how, or why it was happening. That’s until they spotted a 15 ft gator.

Fox 13 reports: Two hunters at a Florida farm say it’s the largest alligator they’ve ever captured in the wild: nearly 15 feet long.

Lee Lightsey, the owner of Outwest Farms in Okeechobee, and hunting guide, Blake Godwin, discovered the monster alligator in one their cattle ponds while on a guided hunt on April 2. They believe the gator had been feasting on the farm’s cattle.

“We also discovered the remains what we determined to be cattle in the water. We determined that he was in fact attacking our livestock as they came to drink,” Godwin said. They spotted the gator Saturday as it surfaced about 20 feet in front of them and Lightsey shot it, Godwin said.

The gator measured just under 15 feet and weighed in at over 800 pounds. He was so big, they had to use a large farm tractor to pull it from the water, Godwin said.
