Gator Boys, is another Animal Planet exciting adventure series, of two Broward County, Florida, alligator handlers, Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle, and their team of volunteers, who unselfishly devote many hours, weeks and years of their time and expertise, to the rescue, safety and survival of gators, as well as a few other exotic reptiles. Paul Bedard is a 20 year expert alligator trapper, who created the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, for multiple reasons. While he and his side-kick, Jimmy Riffle, have known each other for many years, they began working together 7 years ago, at the Everglades Holiday Park, where they wrestle, handle and teach tourists about the most popular, but dangerous, reptile in South Florida. Jimmy RIffle, who has been wrangling alligators since the age of 11, seems to be able to hypnotize the gators, while mesmerizing the audiences! They, and their interesting and dedicated team of volunteers, do many shows a day, 6 days a week and all for tips only. The Animal Rescue part of the show, is what captures the attention of the audience at home, watching Paul and Jimmy capture the real live alligators, who find their way into the backyards, pools, and play areas of the families who live in the regions around the Florida Everglades. Most residents of this area of South Florida, live near the canals and waterways that populate the entire vicinity, so they get several calls daily to please come rescue them, their children and pets, or their property, when it is more their intention, to rescue the lost alligator, and return him to safety and a sanctuary where he will not be trapped or killed for his skin and meat, hence, Everglades Holiday Park! The excitement of the capture is most interesting, with Paul doing the underwater captures, with nothing but a rope attached to a stick, and dragging the gator out of the dark depths to above ground, where Jimmy then captivates the audience and the gator, until he can simply lift his chin, spin around and sit on his back and tape up those massively strong jaws, rendering him safe, for all involved. Watch Gator Boys, another fine weekly feature, on Animal Planet!
