A tidbit of information:
When Mandy Stokes and her husband, John, decided to try their luck in the annual statewide American alligator hunt, she had no idea that August night would go down in history. The Stokes, along with brother-in-law Kevin Jenkins and his children Savannah and Parker, hauled in a 15-foot-9-inch gator that weighed 1,011.5 pounds from the Alabama River near Camden in Wilcox County.
That massive gator, certified by the Safari Club International as the largest ever taken, will be on display for the first time at the Mann Wildlife Learning Museum at the Montgomery Zoo.
