Record gator caught in South Texas

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A Houston man broke records when he caught a massive alligator last week in South Texas.

 

Thursday was the first time 38 year old Austin Kimbrough had been gator hunting. And talk about beginner's luck! He reeled in a 750 pound, 13.5 foot gator. The gator was so big, it sank the boat Kimbrough and his father were in. 

The gator is now being processed and the hide will be tanned for belts, bags or a pair of boots.
