Alligator Attack Handler Birthday Party
She was talking to some children and adults about the alligator on Saturday as it bit her hand and dragged her into the water. The owner of the company naming Shane Richins has stated in an interview on Monday, the handler was opening up the enclosure as she was trying to feed the 8-foot long alligator, the name of the gator is ‘Darth Gator’ but it seems like this time it got a little hyperactive in the moment and this horrific incident took place.
Richins has told the media, the hand of the handler was in the mouth of the gator so she knew if she is going to resist, her hand is going to get ripped off so she went with the gator in the water. he further stated the center has a strict policy for having a second handler be close by when employees are working with the alligator, but this has not been enforced in recent years if the handler isn’t planning to enter the enclosure.

She was struggling to get her hands free from its jaws and then a visitor which has been identified who goes by the name of Donnie Wiseman, yelled that we have got trouble here as he jumped into the water as he climbed on top of the reptile to save the handler.

Wiseman stated, she was aware of the situation and he is glad that she was there to provide them with instructions, he told the station he was waiting for the police to come and shoot him.
