EXPERTS CONCLUDE THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A 'PRETTY GOOD' ALLIGATOR WRESTLER

ALLIGATOR WRESTLING EXPERTS CONVERGED ON BRIDGEPORT THIS WEEK IN HOPES OF ISSUING NEW WRESTLING SAFETY GUIDELINES AFTER LOCAL MAN LOSES A HAND DURING BRIDGEPORT ALLIGATOR DAYS CELEBRATION

BRIDGEPORT

Charlie Horase, 40, learned Tuesday that when it comes to wrestling alligators, being 'pretty good' does not apply.  Horase lost his left hand to his angry opponent in the opening face off between man and beast at Bridgeport's first annual ALLIGATOR DAYS CELEBRATION on Tuesday afternoon.
  
Badzilla was declared winner of the wrestling
match after winning quite handily..
A festive audience gathered at City Square, downtown where they were fed gator burgers and beer before being seated around a makeshift alligator pit.  When the large male alligator named Badzilla was let out of his crate the crowd roared their approval. Then Horase, the local favorite was introduced as the opponent and security had to be called in to settle down the rowdy attendees. As the wrestling match started, one of Horase's fans asked for an autographed picture.  As Horase reached for a pen, Badzilla pounced and chomped off his left hand, bringing a hush to the audience.  The alligator was confined in a corner of the pit and Horase was rushed to the hospital.  In the minutes that followed, Badzilla appeared to enjoy his trophy right down to the last finger.  The judges declared him the winner by a vote of  hands.
 On Wednesday morning a special meeting of alligator wrestling experts met to re-write the rules on   wrestling with an alligator.  "There's no such thing as a 'pretty good' alligator wrestler." was written into the bylaws of the Alligator Wrestling Creed. This joins the other statements already in the by-laws, "There's no such thing as being a 'Not bad' alligator wrestler."  and "There's no such thing as being a 'Promising' alligator wrestler".  There was then a moment of silence to honor the departed alligator wrestlers who were known to have been 'not bad' and 'promising'.

Horase had been wrestling alligators professionally for three months prior to this week's accident and plans tor be back in the pits before Christmas.  He plans to  complete his home study course and hopes to become an expert wrestler. Badzilla is waiting.   OFF THE WALL will follow this story  and keep you posted.
