A 10-year-old girl took down a predator 10 times her size last month in Texas.
According the Victoria Advocate newspaper, Ella Hawk reportedly killed the 800-pound alligator from 15 yards out with a single shot from her crossbow.
The paper said the arrow struck the massive reptile right between the eyes, paralyzing it.
