Grandma kills 12-foot gator after it ate her miniature horse
A grandma is making headlines for killing a huge gator.
Judy Cochran shot a 12-foot, 580-pound alligator in the pond on her family's Texas ranch.
"One shot in the head and he went under,” Cochran. “Typically, they'll do what they call a death roll and just roll over and over and over. Well, this one didn't."
The massive gator may be responsible for eating a miniature horse that went missing from the ranch, three years ago.
The grandma says her friends can't believe she did it - but she's used to surprising people.
This year -- she decided to run for mayor - and won.
