Some young people are taking up the tradition of alligator wrestling, in spite of protests by animal rights activists that it is cruel and unnecessary.

I believe it is inhumane, but enter at your own risk!

This video made what this girl is doing look like it is humane and educational. Steve Irwin used to similiar things on his show.
To just cruely wrestly an alligator or crocidle in front of a group of poeple like i have seen done is cruely. I think it depends on what is meant by alligator or crocidle wrestling, and what they are doing,how it is done, and whether it is educational and not being inhumane in any way to the animal. (i know wrestling with a croc or alligator for any reason can be considered inhumane)

After millions of years of evolution, some people are still incredibly stupid. It seems some people truly do not evolve. The ones that don't make a compelling case.

The one acting at its highest evolutionary potential du jour is the alligator, not the human. Making the alligator more evolved.
