10-year-old girl nabs 13-foot alligator in Texas

- From the end of its snout to the tip of its tail, the alligator that 10-year-old Ella Hawk faced down on Sept. 26 was about three times her size. “I wasn’t nervous,” the young Texan told the Victoria Advocate.

Hawk took a crossbow shot from about 15 yards out and snared the 13-foot beast, big enough to rank No. 1 in the world in Trophy Game Records of the World’s database, according to the Advocate.

Hawk has been hunting for a few years, her father, Tony Hawk, told the news website. But even an experienced hunter doesn’t expect to nab an 800-pound gator.
