Today we saw some “Alligator Wrestling.”
The guy said he doesn’t get paid anything–except tips–because if he’s on the payroll, no one would cover his disability insurance–ah, go figure.
The photos progress from the guy putting his hand in between the gator’s open mouth to his full head in the grasp of the gator’s jaws.
Maybe this guy was too sleek, because I think the crowd was disappointed that the gator (in captivity) seemed to be “losing”.
This is not what happens on the Discovery Channel, where all it takes is for the gator to lash out hard and fast–just once–and this guy in mince meat!
