(TEXAS) - A 10-year-old Texas girl took on a thirteen-foot alligator with her crossbow, and won.  Ella Hawk says she took a crossbow shot from about 15 yards away, and nailed the beast.  Hawk's father says the shot hit the 800 pound alligator just above his eyes.

The hunting guide who released these pictures, says even he hasn't nabbed a gator that size in years.
