Monster 500-pound, 12-foot alligator captured in Florida

PARRISH, Fla. - Divers working on a private underwater project in Florida discovered a massive 12-foot, 500-pound alligator.

The divers, working in Parrish, immediately contacted licensed alligator trappers to remove the beast.

Jim Cutway, a trapper who helped capture the animal, told WKMG-TV, "The divers had less than 5 feet of visibility, and they knew he was there. The gator was very close them."

The trappers were able to capture the alligator, but it took more than two hours to pull it to shore.
