When handling alligators it’s always a good practice to try and NOT stick your hand, foot, or face, in in an alligators mouth. I don’t care if you’ve wrangled hundreds, or even thousands of these dangerous predators, if given the chance, they will try and take a chunk out of you.
Before the intrusion of man, alligators used to own South Florida. Times have changed, however, and now there’s a daily struggle between man and beast. It’s that struggle that keeps Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle busy. The “Gator Boys” operate an animal facility in the Everglades, with the goal to capture nuisance gators — and other wildlife — and return them to their natural habitat before trappers kill the animals.
In the video below, “Gator Boy” Paul Bedard, finds-out that even though he has plenty of experience handling gators, if you make a single mistake, a gator will do what is is that they do and try to literally take your head off. Even though he’s done this stunt several times, it seems that the more you tempt fate, the greater the chances are that you could end-up on the alligators menu.
