Arkansas woman kills 650-pound alligator

September 25, 2014

LEWISVILLE — An Arkansas woman and her hunting team have killed a 10-foot, 6-inch alligator at a private lake near Lewisville.

The Texarkana Gazette reports Denise Smillie harpooned and fatally shot the 650-pound reptile last week.

Smillie, her husband, son and others went to the lake near the Red River at night. She says it took two harpoons and 45 minutes of struggle to bring the alligator to the surface, where she killed it with a 12-gauge shotgun.

They had to hold the gator in the water as they made their way to shore because it was too big to fit in the boat.
