Stop killing our animals. Unbelievable madness how was it possible. A beautiful specimen - killed by two ..... What a shame these two failed to respect our animals.

I think feeding them to other gators would be a more fit and just punishment. Otherwise they'll just be good for nothin' all of their lives. This way at least they can do some good as gator food.
