Mary Ellen Mara-Christian is only five feet, five inches tall, weighing in at 115 pounds. She's looks small, but this week she proved she can take on a lot.
Mara-Christian killed a 13-foot, six-inch, 1,025-pound alligator during South Carolina's alligator hunting season.
How did she do it?
In an exclusive interview on "The Early Show on Saturday Morning," Mara-Christian explained she was out on a boat on Lake Moultrie with her husband and a few friends when she hooked the alligator with her heavy-duty fishing pole.
"We stuck him with a harpoon," she said. "We had two lines on him, we got him with a harpoon."
Mara-Christian said they had no idea how big the gator was. She said others estimated the gator was 10 feet long; it turned out to be three feet longer.
"I had no idea he was that big," she said.
But how did they reel him in?

That’s a BIG gator!
A kid could kill a gator with a gun or a harpoon. Big deal.
So, when he stuck his head out of the water, she shot him with a gun. I guess someone in a wheelchair could do that.
Five foot two
Eyes of blue
but oh what that five foot can do.....
That woman could crawl right into the big alligator’s gullet to see why his belly is so fat.
Get your boot orders in now while they are marked down to 2 pair for $5,500 dollars...
I figured the alligator was cackled to death before I found out it wasn't a Clinton that brought him to his doom.
Read the PETA people’s comments at the link!
Yeah, but she didn’t fight fair!
What I was thinking only you said it better. Nothing to cheer about.
According to the story she had 2 helpers.
And it wasn’t like she actually did it alone. She had her husband and several friends to help her kill an old alligator. And her accent in one of the tapes sounds like she’s from Boston.
She really wanted a new purse didn’t she?
Never mind that NO leftwing "man" has balls enough to do what this woman did.
“A kid could kill a gator with a gun or a harpoon. Big deal.”
Info from Swamp People -
How many do you have in your creel? Big gators have only one vulnerable spot. That is a quarter sized spot on the back of the head (neck). Other spots on the top side are so tough that bullets and harpoons just bounce off.
You should watch swamp people.
Don’t know if this is a record but it is bigger than those shown on that collection of shows about the Cajun gator hunters in Louisiana.
Don’t know what she looks like but the story alone makes her hot.
I need her number. /s
