Great-grandma kills 12-foot alligator, says it ate her miniature horse

A 73-year-old great grandmother shot and killed a 12ft alligator she suspects of eating her miniature horse.

"Polk County is one of 12 core counties that you can only kill a gator between September the 10th and September the 30th - only that 20 days", Ms Cochran told Fox 13.

"Don't mess with Nana", she said. Then, while the gator was roped and on the line, Cochran fired a single shot into the animal's head, killing it. "Shame on the mayor for her cruel, cowardly act", People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said in a statement to NBC News.

"Typically the gators don't bother us, but we've been looking for (this one)", she said, according to The Houston Chronicle.

The meat from the alligator will be eaten and Ms Cochran is also planning on using its hide for a pair of boots.

Nine years ago, her grandson Simon Hughes bagged a 12-foot-six-inch 800 pound male gator at the age of five, making national news.

Polk County, north-east of Houston, is one of a dozen Texas counties that has an alligator hunting season.

Ms Cochran's miniature horse's remains were never found after it disappeared about three years ago. The gator must be baited and caught before it's killed, the station reported.

"We may not understand alligators the way we do animals we're more familiar with, but we know that they're expert navigators, clever hunters, and fiercely protective parents who, most importantly, feel the same fear and pain that we do".
