Gator Grabbin' Contest

Video © Mark M. Hancock /

Each year, alligator wranglers gather at Gator Country in Fannett, Texas to see how many gators they can grab from a pond in 15 minutes. The gators are later tagged and released back into the pond.

Gary Saurage, co-owner of Gator Country and opening narrator, gets bit at about 2:00. Since folks across the pond are unaquainted with the reptilian man-eaters. I cut one scene and deleted the comment and response.

Gator Country has a special license and is responsible for the safety of each animal. They have a high-quality show and the animals are well maintained. This is part of why they must tag them each year. The tag actually protects the gators during floods.

This is part of the "Movie Mondays" series. Please take a moment to click the Google Video link on the video player and vote for this video (or my others). Even if it's only worth one star to you, please vote. A video's overall rank is determined by how many people vote at all. Thanks. :-)
