Alligator Wrestler Investigated: Animal rights group targets real estate tycoon

Here’s an important warning for all Floridians: No matter how tempted you are to demonstrate your "Florida cracker heritage" by jumping on the back of a live alligator, you probably shouldn’t. Recently, 62-year-old multimillionaire real estate tycoon Ronald Bergeron did just that on his 5,000-acre nature preserve and wound up with a punctured palm and two broken fingers. He is now also the subject of an investigation by state wildlife authorities, and an animal rights group wants him arrested. Bergeron doesn’t see why, telling the Sun-Sentinel: "He bit me; I didn’t bite him."
