Man Loses Hand, Faces Charges For Feeding Alligator
As if losing his hand to the alligator wasn’t enough, Florida man Wallace Weatherholt has to front a court for a misdemeanor.
The 63-year-old allegedly dangled fish in front of the 2.7-metre alligator that led to the charges (and the loss of his hand!).
Weatherholt, an airboat captain, was attacked on June 12 while he was giving an Indiana family a tour of the Everglades.
Fox News reports that Collier County Jail records show Weatherholt was charged on Friday with unlawful feeding of an alligator and later posted a $1000 bond.
His next court date is August 22.
