Florida Man Wrestles 9-Foot Gator and Wins

Proving there's a fine line between "brave" and "crazy," a Florida man wrestled with an alligator measuring almost nine feet -- and won. The impromptu smackdown occurred Tuesday in Parkland after a resident walked outside and found the menacing gator lounging in his swimming pool. Not knowing what to do, the man looked on the Internet -- and found Gator Boys, an alligator removal service. Although a photo of Gator Boys' Paul Bedard holding the huge reptile over his head in victory looks pretty menacing, he says capturing the intruder was a piece of cake. "This guy was super mellow; didn’t really give me a hard time at all," Bedard says, adding that swimming pool captures are particularly easy because there's nowhere for gators to hide. "I couldn’t get him to spin on me; he really wanted nothing to do with me. I simply made a frontal catch put a snare on his mouth and taped him up." Would you go anywhere near an alligator without some sort of weapon to sedate it? What's the most unusual thing you've found in your backyard?
