'Swamp Men' wrangle gators, hogs on new TV show: "Ed Woods says even a dead alligator can be dangerous.

Woods, park director at Billie Swamp Safari in the Everglades, says he was barefoot when he stepped on a dead gator and got an infection that put him in the hospital.

But the gators he deals with in National Geographic's new 'Swamp Men' series are very much alive.

One that is 6 feet long has to be removed from the park's airboat dock in the first episode.

In the second episode, Woods and his crew chase after a 9-foot rogue crocodile, nicknamed 'Houdini' because he has eluded them for 12 years."
