Businesswoman Ditches Career For Giant Gators | BEAST BUDDIES

  • 🎬 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.

The only reason Mr. Cuddles hasn't eaten you yet is because you're feeding him.

She’s enthusiastic but she really doesn’t have a clue..

She nuts. Luckily her husband keeps things in perspective. I think that’s the only reason she’s still alive

Imagine just chilling in your enclosure and then some blonde lady drags you out by the tail and starts spinning you around on the ground like a rope😩 Goddamn, I’d go and choke her too if I was that snake.
