Josh Beaudoin shows there’s a very thin line between being a daredevil and gator bait.
“It is important to acknowledge fear but you must not let it control you,” the professional thrill seeker told Caters.
That’s all well and good, but Beaudoin says he had a revelation when he tried to count the rapacious reptiles below him. “It was at that point when I completely realized that there was absolutely no room for error.”
Beaudoin took to Facebook to sum up his derring-do and conveniently supplied a warning for us as well:
“Wow, all I can say is I made it out alive!” he wrote. “Walking over these alligators has been a challenge that I wanted to do for a while, but please do not try this stunt!!! I have had thousands of hours on the slackline and hundreds more in performances. This is strictly for your entertainment. I think they liked my yellow shoes or maybe it was truly me they were after.”
Whatever the case, Beaudoin declared on the YouTube video above, “Can’t say I’ll do that again.”
Wise decision, Josh!
