PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - One Panhandle man has a new trophy - a 12-foot, 550-pound alligator.

Tracy Brown won an alligator hunting permit in a statewide lottery. He and two friends caught the monster gator in the Escambia River earlier this month.

Brown told The Pensacola News Journal ( ) that the men harpooned the gator and wrestled it into his boat after fighting for three hours to capture the animal.
