The next time you to attempt to trap an alligator, don’t do it like this.
Back in 2012, North Carolina reptile scientist Fred Boyce made an absurd attempt to trap an alligator on the side of a highway. He threw a small bath towel over its head and attempted to grab the gator from behind. Bad idea. Boyce came dangerously close to having a good-size chunk bitten out of his torso.
I don’t know much about how to trap an alligator, but I’m pretty sure this is the wrong way to do it.
The guys that were standing near Boyce clearly knew more about gator trapping than he did. Really, guys? You let the old dude wearing khakis and a tucked-in polo wrestle a nasty six-foot-long gator?
Boyce later admitted that the gator was, “a little out of my size range.”
