(Scroll down for video) A drunk man was bitten by a hungry alligator after he decided to remove it from the road, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.
As a result of the attack, the man needed eighty stitches.
The incident unfolded when the victim and two of his friends tried to drag the alligator that was blocking the road. Glen Taylor Bonin of Sulphur, Louisiana, had been drinking when he ran into the 11 foot alligator.
The three friends decided to take off their shirts and use them to cover the alligator’s eyes. The alligator is seen on video trying to bite them several times, and it continued undeterred until it snapped its jaws closed on Bonin’s hand.
The entire incident was recorded by a passing motorist. “I’ve always been the type of person to learn the hard way,” Bonin said. He said that he was fortunate to escape alive and only needing stitches.
