"Texas alligator killing wasn't self-defense"

From Google News, this link to a Texas television station's website. In part:

Patrick Miller and Keyon Ivory said they were fishing in the Trinity River near the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge May 9 when the alligator swam swiftly toward their two-person boat, prompting both men to jump out and Miller to shoot it.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Friday that state game wardens have determined the alligator killing was not in self-defense.

Maybe they should have claimed they saw something metallic in the gator's foot.
