12-Foot Gator Claims Territory in Southwest AR

SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS - In southwest Arkansas, a video of a giant gator growling as loud as a bear is gaining viral fame...
Wildlife officials say what you hear is a mating call by this 12 foot gator -- marking his territory at Millwood Lake. 
The video is courtesy of Annette Brown of Nashville, Arkansas. She and her husband said they were fishing when they saw this giant gator.
"It was just like 'Oh my god what is that?'" Annette said.
"To see one do what the video showed it did , that's pretty unique in itself... especially when it's claiming it's territory," Tony Porter, Project Manager at Millwood Lake, said.
Porter said there have been no incidents of gators attacking humans at the lake, and if you do see one, leave it alone.
Watch the full video of the gator in the attached web extra.
