They estimated it was 50 years old.
It ate an 80lb dog, which prompted the killing.
I understand why they killed it, it was a hazard, but that's a real shame.

I would have liked to have seen them not kill it too, but how the fug do you capture a 500 lb gator? Not saying it couldn't have been done... maybe tranquilizers or something, idk...

If you can tranquilize elephants, hippos, rhinos, etc, you can tranq a gator and move it somewhere safer. I'm sure everyone got all excited about hunting it down and didn't care about anything else. Gators have to eat, and the dog was food, not its fault.

Man that's sad they killed it. What a shame, although if it ate my dog I would want to kill it too.
I never knew gators got that big in NC. A living (until recently) dinosaur.
