Great-grandma kills 12-foot alligator, says it ate her miniature horse

"It's a part of wildlife management.it's not just willy-nilly we decide to go down and kill a gator for heck of it", she said.

A 73-year-old grandmother in Texas shot and killed the 12-foot, 580-pound alligator that she believes killed her miniature horse.

"One shot in the head and he went under".

The Texas mayor noted she had followed all the requirements for hunting the alligator, as outlined by state law, NBC News noted. "Typically, they'll do a death roll and roll over and over and over, but this one didn't".

"This is what I killed on Monday and several wrote back, 'no you did not.' I said yes, I did do that", Cochran told KTRK after she posted the photo on social media.

But Cochran, who her grandkids call "Nana", is already anticipating the alligator meat and boots that her quarry will yield.

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project
Markle called the cookbook "a labour of love", and shared that it held special meaning as it was her "first project". He also exchanged a smile with Ragland, who was attending her first royal event since her daughter's wedding in May.

"Don't mess with Nana", said Cochran, laughing as she spoke with a reporter.

Polk County is one of only 12 in Texas with an alligator hunting season, she said, and its limits gave her barely a 20-day window to take care of business, between September 10-30.

This year was full of firsts for Cochran, according to KTRK-TV.

With conservation rules limiting the green zone on gators to the last 20 days of September, Cochran obeyed all of the regulations and called in a nuisance trapper, for assistance.

It is reported that she was in a meeting when she was told "the big one" had been captured after being lured with a baited hook.
