Gator Bites Golfer’s Arm Off

Yep, this does actually happen in real life, not just a myth carried out from Happy Gilmore: Here’s how it happened:

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.

Those Gators are quick…watch out golfers! You could end up like Chubbs!
