No matter how bad you think you're day is, just remember the report about this Florida man, who's day went from bad to worse after he was charged with illegally feeding an alligator when it decided to chop on his hand.
In Florida, the unlawful feeding of alligators is a second-degree misdemeanor. According to ABC News, the reason why Wallace Weatherholt's case doesn't fall under the "unfortunate accident" defense, turns out the 63-year-old was dangling a fish he was holding in front of the 9-foot gator.
Wallace lured the gator over with the fish, before placing his hand on the surface of the water. We're sure he wasn't expecting to have the appendage bitten off as well.
The alligator was found and euthanized. Weatherholt's hand was also recovered, but it could not be reattached. And to top it off, he had to pay $1,000 in bail money. The now one-handed man is set to be back in court on August 22.
