Torturing An Alligator For Two Hours…This Is Hunting?

This is the ugly face of trophy hunting, torturing a 60-75 year old alligator to death. This “petite woman” should be charged with animal cruelty.

There is outrage over the way she killed a very old alligator that should have been allowed to live out it’s life in peace. To kill the poor reptile she used:

“…baited fishing lines, followed by harpoons, a muzzle snare, shots from a .22-caliber weapon and, ultimately, a knife jab to the spinal cord.”

“This woman should be in jail, not on TV,” was among the tamer comments posted beneath a story on Carolinalive.com.

“They tortured that alligator for hours. That’s just plain sick,” a Bostonherald.com reader chimed in.

Please take the time to write to South Carolina’s Governor and protest this disgusting act of cruelty.
