    It was man against beast for a three-hour struggle, but in the end, Chucky the alligator was back in custody, five days after escaping from an Alabama zoo during Hurricane Ivan. "We are elated!" said Patti Hall, director of the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.

    Chucky, measuring 12 feet long and weighing more than 1,000 pounds, was finally captured Tuesday night by the Alligator Retrieval Team from Gatorland in Orlando, Florida.

    The team had been brought in to Gulf Shores, Alabama, especially to track down the huge reptile.

    Tim Williams, who calls himself the dean of gator wrestling, led the team that brought Chucky's freedom to an end.

    "I feel like we were the crusaders who went out and conquered the dragon and we're coming back to the village all beaten up," he said.

    Hooray for Chucky. Life in the zoo has got to be better than becoming pairs of shoes.

    BTW, being on the alligator retrieval team sounds interesting. Maybe I should go apply next time I'm down in Florida.
