An alligator that weighed 1,011.5 pounds and was over 15 feet long was found in Meek Creek, a Lake Eufaula tributary, last year. When the reptile was opened up, approximately 115 pounds of the weight was due to a deer found in the alligator’s stomach.

“We knew it was big. We took some measurements of its girth, base and around its tail after it was in the boat,” the alligator hunter said. “It is pretty amazing when you think about it.”
