Richmond County authorities where having trouble wrangling in a massive 360lb gator that was terrorizing kayaker in Augusta, so they enlisted help from the professionals. According to WJBF-TV, Trey Durant, licensed gator hunter, and his buddy Robby Amerson saw the deputies fighting hard with the huge gator, so they jumped in to help.
