Two Men Face Felony Charges For Wrestling Baby Alligator
In the nearly minute-long video, Swick is seen standing close to the alligator in shallow water as Bunting, who was recording, said: “You guys ever seen someone get bit by an alligator before? Look at this one right here.”
“Grab his neck right now, grab his neck now. Grab it! Grab it!” Bunting yelled, as Swick caught the alligator, grabbing its neck with his left hand.
Under Florida law, illegally possessing or capturing alligators is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
Online jail records show that Bunting and and Swick, of Wellington, Fla., posted bond shortly after their arrest.
Why can’t idiots just leave animals live in peace?!!
