2008 Gator Grabbin' Contest

On March 22, 2008, The Hancocks spent their afternoon at Gator Country in Fannet, Texas. Most of them traveled from Dallas to attend the Gator Grabbin' Contest at the park. The contest was held to help the park owners move young gators to a deeper pond.

This was two months before we moved back to Dallas. I never got the time to publish the pictures until today. As they say, better late than ever.

The small gators look like puppies when handled with care.

My nephew Jonathan Hancock from Richardson, Texas won the first prize for the longest gator caught during the contest. This was Jonathan's first experience with gators.
