Would you do this?

In Utah, a guest named Donnie Wiseman was visiting the petting zoo — who is ‘petting’ a “Darth Gator,” an 8.5-foot, 150-pound alligator? —  when the alligator suddenly grabbed its trainer’s hand, dragged it into the water and started a ‘death roll.’

That’s when Donnie sprang into action, jumping into the pen and trying to wrestle the alligator.


The remarkably calm trainer, Lindsay Bull, instructed Donnie on what to do and when the gator finally released her hand, another spectator dragged her out of the water. Then Lindsay explained to Donnie how to escape.

Thankfully, trainer Lindsay is now recovering in the hospital and is expected to get full use of her hand back.
