A family in Alabama are celebrating after catching the largest alligator ever recorded in the state over the weekend.The mammoth beast, which measured 15-feet long and weighed 1,011.5 pounds, was captured by five members of the Stokes family near Thomaston.It took the family ten hours to capture the monster.

阿拉巴马州的一个家庭正在庆祝周末捕到了州级历史上最大的一条短吻鳄。它有15英尺长,重1011.5磅,由居住在托马斯顿附近的斯托克一家五口耗时10小时捕获。

The hunt started on Friday night and lasted well into Saturday morning. Mandy Stokes said her crew went through the full range of emotions as they first staked the animal, before battling it, then killing it and finally struggling to take it back to shore.

这场捕猎从周五晚上开始,持续到将近周六清晨。曼迪·斯托克说,大家看到这只巨大的短吻鳄时都十分兴奋,在与它搏斗之前先是把它系在了桩上,然后才杀了它并拖回上岸。

‘He came up just as calm as he could,’ Mandy Stokes said, ‘When I pulled the trigger this time, water just exploded on all of us.’

“它尽可能地表现得非常冷静,”曼迪说,“当我松开扳手时,水花溅了我们一身。”

When they finally got the beast back to dry land, he was so big that he crushed the winch system normally used by Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries biologists.In the end, a backhoe had to be brought in to lift the animal and officially weigh it.

当他们最终把鳄鱼拖上岸时,由于它体型过于庞大,直接压坏了阿拉巴马野生动物和淡水渔业生物学家专用的绞盘。最后,他们不得不买来一个倒铲来抬起并为它正式称重。

Alligators are the only dangerous-game species that can legally be hunted in the state. The mammoth gator has now been officially named as the largest ever legally harvested in Alabama and it could even be a new world record.

短吻鳄是阿拉巴马州唯一可以合法捕猎的危险动物。现在,它已被官方承认是阿拉巴马州合法捕获的最大的短吻鳄,这也有可能是一项新的世界纪录。

In June, Safari Club International declared a 14-foot, 8-inch, 880-pound alligator killed in Texas by Justin Wells of Bossier City, La., in 2007 as the new world record.

It isn't clear which metric-length, weight or a combination of both - SCI used to come to its decision.

六月,国际狩猎俱乐部宣布来自波西尔城的贾斯汀·威尔士2007年在德克萨斯州捕获的14英尺长,8英寸高,880磅重的为新的世界纪录。不过,目前并不清楚是身长、体重各自或者二者的综合才是俱乐部判定记录的标准。

The Stokes' gator measured 70.5 inches around the stomach, 46 inches around the base of the tail and had a 16-inch snout measurement.Following his capture and being weighed, his next stop was scheduled to be Ken Owens' Autaugaville taxidermy shop.

斯托克一家捕获的鳄鱼胃部约70.5英寸高,尾部约高46英寸,鼻子则高16英寸。这条短吻鳄的下一站将是肯·欧文的奥塔贾维尔标本商店。
