Eufaula, Ala. — Authorities say an alligator pulled from a lake in southeast Alabama weighs an estimated 920 pounds.
AL.com reports that the 13-foot, 6-inch gator was captured in Lake Eufaula on Aug. 14.
Authorities say the alligator was caught by Scott Evans of Center Point, Alabama, and his friends, Jeff and Justin Gregg. The gator was weighed at Dixon Lumber Co. in Eufaula.
