Boy, 5, kills giant gator

October 2nd, 2009 by

LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRK) – The catch of the day was just up the Eastex Freeway in Livingston.

Five-year-old Simon Hughes is a real-life gator slayer. Simon didn’t even flinch when he and his dad came across a huge alligator. The pipsqueak hunter from Polk County grabbed his gun and shot and killed the 12-foot long monster.

This gator was just five inches shorter than the Texas record, and that’s got Simon determined to do it again.

“I wasn’t even afraid,” said Simon. “Next year I’m going to kill me a bigger alligator.”

    Why can’t Rambo Jr. watch cartoons and eat junk food like normal 5 year olds? Because of his idiot father this “dragon
    slayer” wannabe may not see a birthday cake with 6 candles.
