Petite woman who bagged monster alligator defends trophy hunt
By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

Maryellen Mara-Christian last week caught and killed what some might perceive to be a genuine monster: an American alligator measuring more than 13 feet and weighing more than 1,000 pounds....


Follow some of the links and read the negative comments.  Astonishing and scary that some folks are so anti hunting.

EDIT TO ADD:

Swamp People- GREAT gator hunting show that wifey and I have watched every Sunday night since it began airing.

baited fishing lines, followed by harpoons, a muzzle snare, shots from a .22-caliber weapon and, ultimately, a knife jab to the spinal cord
...they forgot to mention PMS

According to the article the gator was nearing the end of its life anyway. Looks like this lady has a really nice trophy on her hands.

My parents live on the water and dead gators tend to float into their boat slip from time to time. They're usually nowhere that big though because public sentiment down there is that once they get bigger than the neighborhood kids it's time for the gators to go away.

Dear God above! I just spent about 30 minutes reading some of the comments on that story. The absolute idiocy of some of those people is absolutely astounding! I made a comment to one of them and asked her if she would support an unborn baby's rights to not suffer and be killed as much as she would the "poor" alligator's. Waiting to see what the reply is, I'm guessing I'll get called a "right wing, pro-life, gun loving, unevolved Neanderthal" or something of that nature.
