Massive alligator killed behind house at Rayburn, suspected in killing neighborhood pets

A massive alligator, which is suspected in the disappearance of several dogs and cats in the area, was killed on Tuesday evening when it came out of the water and was found behind a house on Wingate Drive in Rayburn Country.

According Gary Pullen, who is also a sergeant with the Jasper Police Department, the dinosaur era creature had been spotted numerous times over the last 6 months lingering in a cove behind his house. Pullen said a neighbor’s dog recently disappeared, and others in the neighborhood said that they, also, had lost pets.

I've been seeing huge gators up that way while fishing for years. No surprise here. I'm just glad it was handled before a kid got snatched up.
