A Massive 12-Foot Alligator Had To Be Removed From A Shopping Centre


People at a shopping centre in Texas were pretty shocked when a massive alligator wandered in, but perhaps not as shocked as when a woman wrestled this beast to the ground right in front of them.

The 360kg (800lbs), 12-foot reptile has been dubbed ‘Godzilla’, and it’s not hard to see why!

Crazy video footage shows how Christy Kroboth, a professional alligator hunter, grappled with and subdued the 50-year-old reptile outside the First Colony Commons Shopping Center in Sugar Land, Texas.

This crazy gator didn’t go down without a fight, however, and the writhing badass managed to initially throw Christy off its back while officers struggled to tie its jaws together.


Once the creature was under control, a forklift truck from the nearby Home Depot came to pick ol’ Godzilla up and transport him to Janik Alligators, an alligator sanctuary.

Christy said:

He’ll probably just live out the rest of his life and have girlfriends and make babies and be fed every day. He’ll be a happy gator.

See you later, alligator (sorry).
