    Dallas lawyer kills 900 lb alligator

    Let the lawyer jokes begin... best ones get rep.

    http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Dalla...124466269.html

    DALLAS - A Dallas lawyer is making headlines for actions outside the court room.
    Levi McCathern managed to kill a 14-foot, 900 pound alligator.
    McCathern said he and his guide spent two days stalking the reptile along the Trinity River in Leon County. He killed the creature with one shot to the head.
    He plans to mount it on his wall.

    Can't believe we have gators that big in TX. Kinda sad that big guy got taken out as a trophy.

    Cheezy lawyer joke (at the risk of negative rep):

    What's the difference between a lawyer and an alligator?

    One is a fearsome giant blood-sucking flesh-tearing beast and the other is an alligator.

    sorry....

    Wow, managing to hit a reptile in the head with a gun! How skillful, how brave!

    If it was with a knife, or a rock, or a handgun after being thrown from a boat, or in self defense... I would be impressed. But in general, I don't think reptiles make very challenging targets.

    What's your point? I doubt the good lawyer did it to impress you. I dont know about TX but here in FL there's so many damn gators they need to be thinned out and a monster like that has lived a good long life spawning plenty of babies, let another bullgator have a shot.

    My point is that it is no big deal. He could have tracked and shot a 3 foot gator, it would have been just as impressive. Which is slightly more impressive than buying a steak at the piggly wiggly.

    Kill away, eat away, fine with me.

    not really, 14 ft gators aren't as common as 3ft gators and much harder to pull on the boat and dont look as impressive mounted on a wall either it kinda is a big deal to harvest a monster of a creature like that IMHO.

    We agree it makes a more impressive carcass.

    Spoken like a guy who's never hauled a thousand pound gator into a jon boat. Also, I doubt he shot it from like 100 yards away, it isn't like hunting on some prairie where you pick off deer with a hunting rifle from a mile away.

    This story's a croc. Do lawyers have such an inferiority complex that they need to tell you a lawyer did it? They need to nut up.
