Read a printout of a talk between the pilot and the game warden on the radio.
According to one source, the photos were taken over Lake Wiess about 90 miles north of Birmingham, Alabama.
Other sources claim that this was from South Georgia, in fact. There is evidence that the alligator’s length was about 12-14 feet.
Its breakfast that day was a deer. As argued later, the bloodthirsty predator was caught (last photo), but this is unverified information.
'Air1.., have you a visual on the gator ? Over. '
'Approaching inlet now ; over.'
'Roger, Air1 .'
'Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth. Moving in ; over.'
'It's a deer !!! '
'Confirm, Air1! Did you say 'deer' ? Over.'
'Roger. A deer, in its mouth. Looks like a full-sized buck .
That's a BIG Gator! We're gonna need more men. Over.'
'Roger, Air1. Can you give me a idea on size of animal? Over.'
'It's big... 25 feet long......at least !!!
