Watch News Anchor Wrestle With Angry Gator on Live TV
Videos| | By Brian Delpozo
The clip stems from late August, when WBZ sports anchor Steve Burton was involved in a segment featuring several animals. Things went according to plan when Burton handled tarantulas, scorpions, and a boa constrictor. Everything turned however when animal handlers Joaney Gallagher and Michael Ralbovsky tried to hand over an alligator.
Initially the gator appears docile, but as soon as Burton goes to hand the animal back it begins thrashing wildly, much to the anchor’s chagrin. The comical clip quickly went viral, garnering over 1,000,000 Facebook views as of press time, with many finding humor in Burton’s reaction.
