A massive alligator suspected of attacking and killing a man as he waded through floodwaters caused by Hurricane Ida has been caught, according to officials in southeast Louisiana.

Authorities trapped the animal — a scaly beast measuring 12 feet and weighing 504 pounds — on Monday morning in the area of Avery Estates in Slidell, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook. Nuisance hunters and agents with the U.S. and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries also helped with the capture.
