I can't even imagine seeing something like this much less trying to wrangle it. How old would a gator this size have to be?

700 lb gators are usually in the 50+ age range. Too bad they had to die this way.

Well, maybe. They can get that big much more quickly, though; it all depends on how "well" he lived.
