The following CNN animal news video is about an alligator attack. It was uploaded to the CNN website on August 10, 2012. This incident took place at a county fair in Ohio. The fair was in Berea, which is in Cuyahoga County. The video originally aired on HLN Evening Express.
The trainer was playing some kind of game with the gator, and his arm got a bit too close. The gator bit down and wouldn’t let go of his arm. Another trainer came in and tried to coax the alligator to release it by patting it on the top of its snout.
Finally, they used a stick to get the alligator to release his arm. The guy got up with a bloody arm, but he was walking around just fine.
He reportedly went to the hospital but has already been released.
This alligator was not a baby, but it wasn’t huge, either. A bigger animal might have ripped the arm right off. Also, this gator didn’t seem to want to eat the arm. It was like it was playing around or something.
