(For those of you who are not local, Cross Lake is in Shreveport, La.) That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth! Are you ready to go skiing on Cross Lake?! If you ski at the west end of the lake -- try not to fall."</P></B></FONT>

    <font color="#000000" face="Trebuchet MS,Bookman Old Style,Arial" size="3"><font face="Verdana" size="2">The sight of a 12 to 14 foot-long alligator is something south Georgia folks see occasionally, but few have seen one take an adult deer out to lunch. Actually — for lunch. <br><br> The photographs of this deer-eating alligator were taken from the air by Terri Jenkins, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service District Fire Management Officer. She was preparing to ignite a prescribed fire at Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, about 40 miles south of Savannah, Georgia, on <nobr>March 4,</nobr> 2004. <br><br> "One advantage of fire work is you get to see that <nobr>12-14</nobr> footers are common from Santee National Wildlife Refuge in South Carolina to Coastal South Carolina to Georgia’s coast," said Jenkins. "It looks like the alligator population is doing extremely well." <br><br> This one was at least 12-13 feet long. Jenkins said that some bull alligators have a 35 inch girth.</font></font><font color="#000000" face="Trebuchet MS,Bookman Old Style,Arial" size="3"><font face="Verdana" size="2"> </font></font><br> <font color="#000000" face="Trebuchet MS,Bookman Old Style,Arial" size="3"><font color="#2d8f26" face="Verdana" size="2"><br> http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/gatordeer.asp</font></font>
