Businesswoman Ditches Career For Giant Gators | BEAST BUDDIES4.5

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.

I feel bad for laughing when that snake wrapped around her. Like homegirl thought she knew what she was doing. Lol she tried to show out for the camera.

It made me uncomfortable when she tried to act like mr cuddles and her were friends. Pretty sure he viewed her as a meal, not a companion.

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



she reminds of myself when I am trying to impress ladies, so awkward and clueless.

When she was man-handling that snake and it began to constrict her...she was lucky her boyfriend was there watching, and could bail her out! Otherwise she wouldn't be having a mid-life crisis it would be more like an *end-of-life* crisis.

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

She fell in love with that man and took his love for reptiles on as her new hobby.

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.

“This is what rehabilitation is all about!” *as she throws the alligator like it’s a baseball bat into a pond*
