Alligator! Got this in an email today from a friend. I don't believe it's 28 foot but no doubt a big ole alligator!

Lake Thomas, Florida
The first 2 pictures were taken by a KTBS helicopter flying
over Lake Thomas , Winter Haven , Florida .
The helicopter pilot and the game wardens on the ground
were in communication via 2-way radios.
Here is a transcript of their conversation.
'Air1, have you a visual on the gator? Over.'
'Approaching inlet now. Over.'
'Roger Air1.'
'Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth.
Moving in. Over.'
'Roger Air1.'
'Oh Crap, it's a deer!'
'Confirm Air1. Did you say Deer? Over.'
'Roger...a deer in its mouth...looks like a full sized buck...
that's a big gator, boys. We're gonna need more men. Over.'
'Roger Air1. Can you give me a idea on size of animal. Over.'
'It's a big one...25 feet at least. Please advise. Gator is
heading to I pursue? Over.'



This alligator was found between Lakeland and Winter Haven ,
Florida near the house of Anita and Charlie Rogers, who could
hear the beast bellowing in the night.
Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a
mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their
house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.
'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said.

But, after the alligator was killed, they realized the stories
were, if anything, understated.
Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator.
Joe Goff, a 6'5" tall game warden, shown below,
walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch long alligator that he
helped shoot and kill in the Rogers ' back yard
