How to Wrestle an Alligator. By Jay

How to Wrestle an Alligator. By Jay.
1st- Make sure you are dressed in colors that blend with your prey so he won't see you approaching. Luckily daddy dressed me in all stripes today.

2nd- Start with the alligator's mouth. Make sure it is pinned shut as you begin to tackle him.
3rd- Use your body weight to roll over onto the alligator so you can get some leverage on him.


4th- Use both hands to keep a good grip on him. Keep one eye on him at all times so he doesn't get the upper hand.
5th- Don't be afraid to be aggressive and yell a little.
6th- Sometimes it ain't pretty...it's like pulling teeth.
7th- To really tackle him you need to get him on his back where he can't go anywhere.
8th- When you finally take him- CELEBRATE. Some loud screaming is usually my celebration of choice.
Phew. That was a close one. Now I just now need to figure out if this is an alligator or a crocodile.
