Alligator Rips Golfer’s ARM Off

Beaufort, South Carolina – Officials say an alligator bit off part of a golfer’s arm as he leaned over to pick up his ball at a private South Carolina course.

The man, who is in his 70s, was retrieving his ball from a pond when the 10-foot alligator bit him at Ocean Creek Golf Course in Beaufort County. The gator pulled the golfer into the pond and ripped off his arm in the struggle. His golf partners were able to free him.

Wow!  That’s a pretty gripping account!  I mean, Chubbs made golf course alligator attacks famous when he lost his hand, but this guy really one upped him.  Getting pulled into the pond and having his arm ripped off?  That’s really raising the bar.
