Great-grandmother, 73, hunts and kills 12ft alligator which 'ate her miniature horse'

Женщина-мэр застрелила крокодила угрожавшего городу в США Great-grandma kills 12-foot alligator, says it ate her miniature horse

"The gator was large enough it could have eaten the mini-horse and the other gators are much smaller", she said, adding that the reptile was in the same pasture where the horse had been.

Cochran, meanwhile, plans to get back to her work as mayor, Rotary Club member and board member of a bank and two hospitals, all of which she said has "kind of had to wait while I've been taking care of this celebrity stuff".

Judy Cochran, mayor of Livingston, Texas, told a local news station that she believes the 263kg gator she found on her family ranch is responsible for killing her horse which went missing three years ago. Also, the mayor of Livingston, with a population 5,200, wants her folks to know she legally hunted the alligator.

She killed it with one clean shot after hunting it for years at her ranch on the Trinity River.

It's legal in Polk County to kill an alligator, 20 days of the year, but it must be baited and caught first.

DeChambeau the man to beat at season-ending Tour Championship
Now that the 2018 Tour Championship field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. All of which makes Tuesday morning's announcement at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. seem all the more radical.

Still in touch with her school classmates, Judy sent around a photo of her with the gator captioned: "This is what I killed on Monday".

"Typically, they do a death roll, and roll over and over, but this one didn't".

Some have asked why she didn't have the alligator relocated, but Cochran said she viewed that option as simply passing along a nuisance.

Judy Cochran says her miniature horse went missing, and she is suspicious it was killed. Its meat will be eaten by Cochran's family, probably as fried gator balls.
