- 🎬 Video
- ℹ️ Description
A CORPORATE high-flyer has traded in her high heels and glitzy networking events to spend her days training giant alligators and handling some of America’s deadliest snakes. For years, Shannon Saurage, 42, worked in the executive world as part of an HR company where she dealt with 700 employees daily. Now she spends her days with her own 11ft, 550-pound gator named Mr Cuddles – training, feeding, and even kissing the beast at Gator Country, a reptile park and rescue centre in Beaumont, Texas. Shannon works alongside her husband Gary Saurage, who opened the park in 2005, and acts as the lead nuisance alligator hunter for the state of Texas.
