BOSTON, Mass (CBS) – A Boston TV sports anchor appears to have a hidden talent – alligator wrangling.
News 3’s sister station WBZ-TV shares a video of sports anchor Steve Burton holding an alligator brought to the studio by herpetologist Michael Ralbovsky.
In the video, the alligator begins to flail around and tries to escape Burton when it is spooked by a nearby crocodile.
But the gator was no match for the anchor, as Burton held firm until Ralbovsky could take over.
“That thing was so strong. I wasn’t fine!” Burton joked about his reptile wrangling experience.
