LITTLE ROCK, AR – A Prescott man killed a 13’3”, 1,380 pound alligator in Hempstead County last Friday.

Mike Cottingham says he bagged the gator in the lost lakes area below the dam at Lake Millwood. Arkansas Game and Fish tells Cottingham his catch is a state record.

Cottingham says the gator was so large that they couldn’t get it into his boat. When they got back to the dock it took 5 people to get it out of the water.

Cottingham plans to mount the head and make boots with the rest of the animal.
