Hunters catch 12-foot, 500+ pound gator

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

Two men from Lakeland have quite a catch to show off.

Harris Woodsby and Matt Fellows caught and killed a gator earlier this month that was more than 12 feet long. It weighed 565 pounds.

The two say this is by far the biggest gator they've ever caught, and they had been hunting it for two weeks.

Woodsby said the gator will be mounted and put on display at the restaurant that he's opening in November.
