Large, even for a gator

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - July 30, 2010

The huge alligator was pulled from a South Carolina lagoon earlier this week.

It took three gator wrestlers from the Critter Management company to capture the 11-foot-long reptile.

The workers used a truck to pull the gator from the lagoon near a church. One of the professional gator wrestlers tells the Island Packet of Hilton Head that the gator was so big, it was like a frog in a puddle.
