'Gator Boys': Paul Cracks His Head During Dangerous Tunnel Capture (VIDEO)

The "Gator Boys" faced a real challenge in Mississippi. It's hard enough trying to capture an alligator in the open waters of their natural environment, but this week they were called in to deal with one that had gotten into a tunnel. In that smaller space, the danger increases dramatically.

The guys had to be crouched down the entire time, and Paul Bedard even suffered a blow to the head. When the alligator spun around, the instinct to jump out of the way proved problematic with such a low ceiling. And being made of concrete, it wasn't the kind of distraction Paul needed while facing off against a gator.

Despite the dangers, though, the men worked together and managed to subdue the creature, taping up its deadly jaws. They even noted that it had particularly strong jaws, making the narrow capture even more threatening in hindsight. Luckily, no one was injured.

The dangerous captures continue every week on "Gator Boys," Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Animal Planet.
