FOLLY BEACH, South Carolina, May 14, 2015 – The first shock was seeing a 12-foot alligator sunbathing on the shore. Look at this beast… I would have run away.
The second shock was when witnesses say the gator was shot to death right in front of them. A witness took a photo before the animal was killed (above). According to him, there was no warning of the gunfire, and the crowd was just asked to stand back. But the Department of Natural Resources answered, killing the 12-feet gator was the only way to protect human safety… You bet! – WCSC
