Critter Control Sponsors Freestyle Alligator Wrestling Competition (FAWC) May 11 and 12

The FAWC is a unique and exciting two day professional freestyle alligator wrestling competition. Held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood Florida, the events start Friday night and concludes with the finals on Saturday night. Wrestlers will compete against each other in a scoring system similar to that of professional bull riding. The alligator will receive a score and the wrestler will be judged according to their skills for a combined score. Judging categories are: Alligator Aggressiveness, Water Wrangling, Land Wrangling, Wrestler Style and Danger/Difficulty of Stunts.

Each competitor will have 8 minutes to remove an 8-9' gator from a seven foot deep pool of water onto land, where they will attempt to outperform each other with dangerous stunts.

NOTE - Critter Control and the FAWC organization are fully committed to ensuring the much deserved respect, safety, and health of each alligator used in FAWC events. The FAWC strictly adheres to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations for the treatment and transportation of alligators. That said, "alligator wrestling" is a centuries old tradition of Native Americans, in which the animals are caught and subdued in a manner more humane than what is allowed by government regulations. Competitors demonstrate a barehanded capture technique derived from Native Americans that in no way puts the alligator's life in danger nor causes pain. Most alligators used in the competitions are rescued animals saved from trappers that were scheduled for destruction.
