ORANGEBURG, S.C. - It's not something you'd want to run into.

A couple trapped an 800-pound alligator after fighting it "for hours" on Lake Marion last Saturday according to The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg.

The gator clocked in at a whopping 12-feet long, and 10-inches wide, and weighed 806 pounds.

Melissa Davis and fiancé Jonathan Smith said they'll stuff it, and donate the meat to charity.
