Was alcohol a factor? You bet it was! Here's a CNN story about a guy who admits he and his friends had some liquid courage, or in this case maybe liquid stupidity, when they came across an 11 foot alligator in the road.

Instead of calling authorities, they decided what could be so hard about wrestling an 11 foot alligator? We've got t-shirts to throw over its eyes, right? We've seen guys do it on TV before, right? 80 stitches later the man's advice now is to call the authorities. See for yourself what happened.
