On "Swamp People" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) alligator hunters Joe LaFont and Tommy Chauvin were on the trail of the beast known as "Big Jake."
The fearsome gator had chased all the others out of his patch, severely injuring some of them in the process.
When the hunters caught up with Big Jake, Tommy shot it dead-on, but it didn’t stop the gator, so Tommy had to shoot it again.
"Swamp People" continues on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET on History.
