I am sure many of you heard or read about the golfer in South carolina who recently lost his arm to a 10 foot alligator on Fripp Island, South Carolina. Here is the story:
BEAUFORT, S.C. -- 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.
Kate Hines with the Fripp Island Property Owners Association says the man was picking up his ball when a 10-foot alligator pulled him into a nearby pond.
The man's golf partners were able to free him. Workers from Tracks Wildlife Control in Beaufort killed the alligator and removed the man's arm in the hopes it might be reattached. The man has not been identified. He was being treated at the Medical University of South Carolina, but officials there would not release any information about him.
Apparently he walked into the golf shop with his arm bundled up in towels and said, "I've really messed up now!"
