Tough Guys Capture Giant Alligator Bare-Handed

Two men in Jacksonville, Fl. who had been on the lookout for a massive alligator finally took their reward on Thursday when they were able to get their hands on a 765-pound, 13-foot-4-inch "monster" alligator. They promptly named him Lumpy.

Lumpy and company.

Kelly Sziy and Keith Kelley had been searching for the giant for months, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.  Thursday, before sunrise, they spotted their prey, and were able to take it down using only "a rope, a few hooks, and their manly strength."

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"Put some leather gloves on and I told Kelly: we're going to have to get him by hand and that's all it is to it. Hang on," Kelly continued.
Four hours later, "Lumpy" was brought in and weighed. He was so heavy, he broke the scale. Specialists at the Alligator Farm say they don't see those kinds of catches very often.

Lumpy was taken down and killed for meat, shortly being processed after it's capture. Although it isn't clear why they named it before they killed it. Lumpy's head was mounted on a wall, and the men celebrated by continuing their hunt for larger and lumpier alligators to kill.

R.I.P. Lumpy.  See you on the other side.
