Should Florida ban alligator wrestling?

In an old video, a Miccosukee man wrestles an alligator. | Here's an AP video of Seminoles who are trying to turn alligator wrestling into an extreme sport.

Seminoles and Miccosukees have been wrestling alligators in Florida for generations. It used to be for survival. Now its more for entertainment, and though it was quite common a couple of decades ago, the practice seems to be dying out. There's a petition online at to get the Florida Legislature to ban alligator wrestling. What do you think? Comment below.
