    The nearly 15-foot gator killed in central Florida.

    Some alligator hunters in central Florida fell just short of a record with a monster catch.

    Outwest Farms in Venus, near Okeechobee, posted a photo to Facebook of a nearly 15-foot-long gator killed over the weekend.

    The alligator was so big they had to use a front-end loader to lift it up. The record for the longest alligator captured in Florida is a little over 17 feet.

    The animal was "the largest gator we have ever killed in the wild," part of a guided alligator hunt on Saturday, Outwest wrote in the Facebook post's caption.
