A 15-foot alligator weighing 1,011.5 pounds was taken by Thomaston resident Mandy Stokes Friday night/Saturday morning near Millers Ferry in Wilcox County. It is believed to be a potential world-record legally harvested alligator. According to a family member, the gator tops the Alabama record Fancher alligator, taken in 2011. That alligator was 14-foot, 2 inches and weighed 838 pounds. Shown above from left are John Stokes, Mandy Stokes, Savannah Jenkins, Kevin Jenkins, and Parker Jenkins.
