AP CAMDEN, ALABAMA - A group of Alabama hunters are celebrating the catch of a lifetime: A 15-foot (4.5-meter) alligator weighing more than 1,000 pounds (450 kg). Al.com (bit.ly/1p5ycbg ) reports the monster gator was pulled from the water in south Alabama early Saturday during the state's alligator hunting season. Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries biologists were able to measure the alligator, but weighing it posed a challenge.
