Animal rights group PETA condemns Texas grandmother who killed an alligator

Animal rights group PETA condemns Texas grandmother who killed an alligator

She told local news stations that her horse - which she described as being the size of a labrador - went missing in the same pasture where the alligator had been.

Cochran, meanwhile, plans to get back to her work as mayor, Rotary Club member and board member of a bank and two hospitals, all of which she said has "kind of had to wait while I've been taking care of this celebrity stuff".

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

On Monday, Cochran shot the gator in the same pond where her grandson killed one in 2009, the Houston Chronicle reported. Also, the mayor of Livingston, with a population 5,200, wants her folks to know she legally hunted the alligator.

Her family even took video of the gator's demise to document it was killed in accordance with hunting law.

Kremlin Chilly to Syrian Condolences for Deadly Plane Downing
Hezbollah has provided vital support to Syria's military in the seven-year war, helping it regain swathes of the country. Russia would investigate the incident, Putin said, and boost security for Russian troops in Syria.

Cochran defended herself, saying the animal could have been a nuisance and threat to other community members.

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

"Moye Taxidermy will be processing it, we'll eat the meat, have the head mounted and have the ridgeback part of the tail in my office".

Cochran's ranch is home to cattle, as well as dogs and cats, horses and several miniature horses - she's not sure exactly how many, she said, because "they multiply". Its skin will be tanned to make boots, she said.

Don't worry though, the gator won't go to waster.
