Mass. woman bags 1,025-pound alligator in SC lake

Sep 17, 2010 8:44:00 PM - thestate.com
Experienced hunter Maryellen Mara-Christian of Massachusetts says she was excited to get her first alligator on a hunt this week in South Carolina.

Hooking and killing the 1,025 pound, 13 1/2-foot gator has made her something of a celebrity.

"He was just a big old gator," she said Friday by phone from a hotel in Washington, D.C., where she will be interviewed on a morning news show Saturday. "The hunt of a lifetime, I'd say."

The 48-year-old laid-off bank marketing officer from Fitchburg, Mass., was hunting Wednesday with her husband, Mark, who is a firefighter in Massachusetts and a part-time hunting guide in Maine, and Lake Moultrie guide Kevin Davis.

"I came down to South Carolina hoping for a 10-footer and I just lucked out to may have gotten one of the biggest ones people have ever seen," Mara-Christian said.
