'Gator Boys': Severely Injured Marine, Corporal Todd Love, Wrestles An Alligator (VIDEO)

On "Gator Boys" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on Animal Planet) Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle helped make a wounded veteran's dream come true.

Todd Love, Corporal USMC, lost both his legs and his left arm in an IED explosion in Afghanistan in October 2010.

Despite the severity of his injuries, Todd had not given up on his dream of wrestling an alligator, and so the "Gator Boys" set him up with the opportunity. He also got to touch an 11-feet-long alligator on the nose.

Talking about his wounds, Todd said, "I miss my legs, but I have other things that I have gained from this. The power to influence people."

"Gator Boys" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
