AUSTIN (AP) - A monster 880-pound alligator that was a Dallas lawyer’s prize catch last month is now evidence in an investigation that has resulted in four arrest warrants.

Texas Parks and Wildlife spokesman Mike Cox said Wednesday that 42-year-old Levi McCathern and his three fishing and hunting guides were charged with taking wildlife on private property without the landowner’s permission.

A man who owns land on the Trinity River in Leon County told state game wardens that a large alligator had been killed on his property without his consent on June 11 and a second, smaller ‘gator was taken the day before.

Game wardens seized a 13-foot-1-inch alligator and a near 9-foot alligator.

Violators of the Class A misdemeanor face a maximum $4,000 fine and/or one year in jail.
