Gator Update (Lawsuit Edition)

Golfer Gored by Gator Sues Course Over Pond Design | Animals: "A golfer whose arm was torn off by an alligator during a round of golf in South Carolina has sued the course's owner under the novel theory that the design of the course created an alligator hazard.

Fripp Island is a barrier island along the South Carolina coast with luxury homes and three golf courses. James Wiencek of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, was playing a round at the Ocean Creek Golf Club in October 2009 when a 10-foot, 400-pound alligator pounced on him, pulling him into the pond at the 11th hole and ripping his arm off."

I hope he gets a pair of boots out of that gator. Hell. He could probably get a pair for the whole family.
