Those photos have circulated cyber space for a few months now. There are a lot of different stories about where the pictures were taken. I received them in an email claiming the pictures were taken at a lake here in California. Here is the real story behind the photos:
In August 2004, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) finally cleared up the issue by issuing a press release identifying the photographs as having been taken in south Georgia (near the Georgia/South Carolina border) by a USFWS officer in March 2004:
The sight of a 12 to 14 foot-long alligator is something south Georgia folks see occasionally, but few have seen one take an adult deer out to lunch. Actually — for lunch.
The photographs of this deer-eating alligator were taken from the air by Terri Jenkins, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service District Fire Management Officer. She was preparing to ignite a prescribed fire at Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, about 40 miles south of Savannah, Georgia, on March 4, 2004.
"One advantage of fire work is you get to see that 12-14 footers are common from Santee National Wildlife Refuge in South Carolina to Coastal South Carolina to Georgia’s coast," said Jenkins. "It looks like the alligator population is doing extremely well."
This one was at least 12-13 feet long. Jenkins said that some bull alligators have a 35 inch girth.

Good morning, I have a question and hope someone can point me in the right direction. I recently went down a very sandy driveway and got stuck. After hours of trying to get my truck out, I no longer have reverse. Any idea what the issue could be? All other gears work fine.
