A 15-foot alligator was caught in Montgomery, Alabama after an epic struggle that lasted more than five-hours. The gator, which was caught by Mandy and John Stokes, destroyed the winch typically used to weigh animals, but was eventually weighed using a backhoe.. The 1,011-pound alligator fought to the very end nearly knocking over the 17-foot boat. (Yahoo)
