Alligators are never to be messed up with, and one man paid the price after ignoring warning signs of alligators in the water.
Guy Yells “F**K That Alligator,” Immediately Gets Eaten By Alligator
Tommie Woodward, a 28-year-old Texas man, was killed after mocking signs that warned alligators were in the water. Tommie yelled “F**K that alligator,” jumped in the lake, and was immediately mauled to death by the animal. A woman also accompanied Tommie into the water, but she was not harmed.
There are plenty of signs around the marina after alligators were spotted; signs that warn against getting close to the water or swimming in it.
Jusice of the Peace Rodney Price stated “He removed his shirt, removed his billfold … someone shouted a warning and he said ‘blank the alligators’ and jumped in to the water and almost immediately yelled for help.”
Let this be a lesson to everyone out there: if a sign tells you not to do something, it is usually for your safety, so it’s best to listen to that sign that someone went out of their way to hang.
Tommie is the first man killed by an alligator in Texas in almost 180 years.
