 A Florida airboat captain whose hand was bitten off by a 9-foot alligator faces charges of feeding of the animal.

Collier County Jail records show 63-year-old Wallace Weatherholt was charged Friday with unlawful feeding of an alligator and later posted $1,000 bond. His next court date is Aug. 22.
The arrest was first reported by the Fort Myers News-Press
Kinda overdoing the law enforcement thing don't you think?


  1. I think I hear the echo of jack boots in America.

  2. Of course, it makes some sense when you find out that he lost his hand while feeding a fish to the gator

  3. You mean he wasn't just feeding his hand to the gator?
