900-Pound Gator Video - Gator Caught by Massachusetts Woman in South Carolina

A 900 pound gator was caught this week by a Massachusetts woman fishing in South Carolina. Mary Ellen Mara-Christian caught and then killed a 13-foot long gator in Lake Moultrie this week. WLTC reports that the Massachusetts resident successfully got a permit through South Carolina's permit lottery system for the one month long alligator season. "He was right there at the edge of the bank swimming on the edges," Mara-Christian said. She hooked him with her fishing pole and battled for two hours to get him near the boat. In South Carolina, you have to secure the gator and get it to the boat before you're allowed to shoot it.
