GRAPHIC PICS: Wait…Is That A Human Arm In That Gator’s Jaws?

A set of photos is depicting what appears to be a golfer’s arm in an alligator’s jaws is going viral…

But it’s not what you think…

Kind of.

Yes, that is a human arm in the gator’s jaws…

But, NO, it wasn’t a golfer.

According to SNOPES

The photographs are genuine but the description is not accurate. The images do not depict a golfer who was attacked while retrieving his ball. In fact, they show the results of an alligator attack on snorkeler Bill Hedden at Charleston, South Carolina’s Lake Moultrie recreation area in September 2007. In 2009 a Beaufort, South Carolina, golfer really did lose part of an arm to an alligator while attempting to recover his ball. However, the photographs in this message have no relation whatsoever to the Beaufort incident.

Regardless, the pics show just how dangerous an alligator can be.

Again, GRAPHIC PIC WARNING
