Alligator hunting is becoming a popular sport in the South, but there aren't many 16-year-old cheerleaders taking part. Cammie Colin is an exception, however. Colin was part of a 5-person team that captured a monster gator in a South Carolina swamp over the weekend.

The gator weighs 353 pounds and is 10' 5" inches long.

Cammie, a junior varsity cheerleader, has been hunting with her father since she was 2 years old. This was her first attempt at gator hunting, however.

"I thought it was going to be way smaller," Cammie told reporters after catching the alligator. "I was very shocked whenever it got to the boat and it was that size."

She hopes to snag an even bigger gator next time.
