Poor really big fellah.
A teenager in Texas is celebrating a record breaking hunt these days. The teen, Braxton Bielski, and his dad caught an 800 pound alligator which was a new record according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
But we feel sorry for the alligator!
Officials estimate the alligator was 30 to 50 years old before it was shot by the teenage hunter.
Imagine living that long only to be gunned down by an 18-year-old kid!
Why do people find hunting alligators fun???

The governor of Michigan is obviously not a Wolverine fan as he's totally OK'd a bill that will allow the hunting of the gray wolf.
Not too long ago - the species was nearly driven to extinction, but since then has experienced something of a resurgence.
Feelings about wolves divide the public. Some feel they're a nuisance that prey on farm animals, while others respect their unfiltered wildness.
Here's what Governor Rick Snyder said:
A man from Western Pennsylvania is in legal trouble for shooting a buck from a busy Walmart parking lot.
That sounds super dangerous!
Arcangelo "Angelo" Bianco Jr., 40, is going to trial for reckless endangerment and state game charges.
Wildlife conservation officers said that last November, Bianco shot several rounds at a buck in a Walmart parking lot so close to employees that deer blood was splattered on trailers that were being unloaded!!
That's insane! Why was he shooting so near people?? Did he have something personal against the deer?
He continued shooting at the fleeing deer until it died and he later retrieved it from the side of a road nearby.
Pretty sure this guy is gonna lose his gun license and have to pay some serious fines at a minimum!

The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!
The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!
Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.
The numbers are cray cray!
Tabu, a Bollywood actress who starred in Life of Pi is being charged along with four other actors for the killing of a protected animal.
The poaching case is a 14-year-old and is finally going to trial next month for the shooting of a blackbuck, a protected antelope.
Tabu and the four other actors were shooting a film in 1998 near Jodhpur when the shooting took place.
What's crazy is if they're convicted, they could face up to
We already know that Ted Nugent can be disrespectful to women and loves to dismember animals in front of unsuspecting people.
So it's not a huge surprise that he went on a pig killing spree!
Though that doesn't excuse any of it!!
He literally went on a wild animal massacre!
A picture of a giant wolf killed in Michigan has really got some people talking.
The wolf was struck by a car and killed in an accident on a highway.
A man took a picture of himself holding the dead wolf, which weighed an incredible 100-pounds and was almost as tall as him!!
Even though the death was an accident, it's sparked a debate in Michigan regarding the hunting of wolves. A new law may go into effect
