10-Year-Old Girl Slays 800-Pound Gator with Perfect Crossbow Shot
Watch out, Katniss Everdeen. There's a new star bow-hunter in town.
10-year-old Ella Hawk of Texas killed an 800-pound alligator with a single shot of her crossbow.
Ella killed the 13-foot reptile from about 15 yards while hunting with her father, Tony Hawk (not the skateboarder), on the Guadalupe River in South Texas.
“I wasn’t scared but I was nervous,” Ella said about the perfect shot that nailed the gator right between the eyes.
The size of the trophy was enough to rank No. 1 in the Trophy Game Records of the World’s database, according to the Victoria Advocate.
Tony said they had no idea how big the gator was until they pulled it from the river.
Watch Ella and her dad speak to “Fox and Friends” about the amazing kill in the video above.
