  • Description

    Miami, Florida, United States of America.

    Alligator wrestling is an hourly tourist attraction in a place called "Tropical Paradise". Rather cruel really. An audience watches and applauds as a man pulls an alligator out of a small pool and wrestles with it. Man opens the mouth of the alligator to show his teeth then wrestles it to the ground. The alligator is tickled to knock him out although narrator observes that "mesmerism" plays its part too. To bring the alligator back to life the man hits it on the nuzzle with a stick. Alligator turns over and slips back into its pool.

    Cuts exist - see other record.
