When a hunter took a slain alligator to be turned into sausages, he had no idea he would solve a two-decade mystery.

Hunter Ned McNeely took the 12ft-long beast into Cordray's, a South Carolina wild game meat plant, and asked them to process the meat into sausages and use the hollow skin as a trophy.

When they got to work, they discovered several interesting items in the killer creature's stomach – including the undigested tags of five dog collars.

Shop owner Claudia Cordray said: “It definitely ate them (the dogs). It was an old animal, 50 to 70 years old.”

Incredibly, one of the phone numbers was still visible on the tags, and after calling it, they were given some shocking news.

Writing on their Facebook page, Cordray's said: “Two of the tags were legible and one phone number still worked. The owner said he had (hunted the same area) 24 years ago and those were from his deer dogs.”

Also inside the 445-pound (31 stone) reptile was one bullet jacket, one spark plug, loads of turtle shells and several bobcat claws.

The discovery of the dog tags and other bric-a-brac happened entirely by chance, as Cordray's team of taxidermists and butchers usually discard the stomach without cutting in to it after learning the hard way that the contents can stink out their whole business.

Cordray said: “We normally don’t go into the stomach. That’s because we once went into the stomach of a big one years ago, and there was a very rotten 3-foot gar inside. It smelled so bad that every one had to leave.”

According to local media, South Carolina’s alligators typically grow to 13 feet and live more than 60 years.

Cordray’s is run by Claudia and Michael Cordray and they handle over 100 alligators a year and can turn their meat in to sausages or jerky.

The taxidermy services, which is their son Kenneth's area of expertise, can transform a dead alligator into anything - even a “leg” lamp.

The gator was living along the Edisto River and was harvested “at the behest of a landowner,” which is why it was killed outside of the State's legislated hunting season.

Cordray added: “It doesn’t surprise me at all. Where we live, lots of people have stories about walking their dogs on a golf course or where ever, and something grabs the dog.”

The Facebook post sparked a lot of comments from people sharing their own horror stories about dogs suspected of being eaten by the apex predators.

One said: “It’s crazy to me that among all the other wildlife we have, there are these huge predatory dinosaurs basically still lurking in all of our waters.”

What a huge alligator !�
Those dogs are just morons.
How can a very slow alligator catch a dog that has a keen sense of smell, sight and hearing.
What's the purpose of keeping such dogs.

In other words the Monster Alligator has Destroyed the destiny of the dogs. The innocent dogs must have gone close to devourer and had no Shepherd to protect them.

In our Journey on this Earth, it is very Important and Vital to stay with the Shepherd of our lives. As long as we are hidden in the Shepherd of lives, He will Preserve us from the Devourers waiting to devour us and when He calls us home we will be Guaranteed of Eternal rest in Heaven.

JESUS Christ is the True Shepherd! HE is the only one that will Guaranteed our Safety here on Earth and in Eternity..

Most likely scenario: the dogs confronted the alligator and the inevitable happened. Most dogs usually don't know when to back off from danger.
