Great-grandma kills 12-foot alligator, says it ate her miniature horse

"We don't just go to the ranch and hunt a gator, ' she said".

Judy Cochran of Livingston, Texas needed just one shot to kill a 12-pound gator she believes ate her miniature horse, USA Today reports.

"When Scott called, he said, we've got the big one, Nana, so come on down", said Cochran.

Cochran's county in Texas is one of a few where you can only kill a gator 20 days of the year.

"You can't just go shoot an alligator because it's there", she said.

On Monday, she fired one shot to kill what she says was the likely perpetrator: a 3.6-metre, 260-kilogram alligator in a murky pond on her property.

'Veronica Mars' revival officially greenlit at Hulu
However, she also took on an assortment of smaller cases against the backdrop of the larger story. Shortly after Bell sent out the confirmation, Hulu backed her up with a tweet of their own.

The Texas mayor noted she had followed all the requirements for hunting the alligator, as outlined by state law, NBC News noted.

Polk County is one of only 12 in Texas with an alligator hunting season, she said, and its limits gave her barely a 20-day window to take care of business, between September 10-30.

The meat from the alligator will be eaten and Ms Cochran is also planning on using its hide for a pair of boots.

Ms Cochran's miniature horse's remains were never found after it disappeared about three years ago.

So she was glad when she discovered the raccoon carcass her son-in-law helped hang on a hook above the water had successfully caught the patriarch of the pond. She was elected as mayor in May, became a great-grandmother for the first time earlier this month and can now call herself a killer of predators.
