But one gator expert says the bite was in no way an attack. It's a risk Gator John takes everyday at Wooten's - getting up close and personal with alligators and hand feeding them in a controlled setting.

They need to PRESS CHARGES on this idiot!!
It serves him right by showing off, trying to look like a hero in front of some tourists.
I'm not a fan of alligators, but they belong in the Everglades - people don't! They went onto his property, broke the rules and the gator had to die because of it.
I'm glad they couldn't reattatch it.

These tours encourage the gators....I thought there was a $500 fine for feeding the gators?

Yes. There's supposed to be. Alligators lose their fear of humans when we feed them. I'm sure every airboat/tour captain fed them, just so they would keep the tourists entertained. Not cool.
