Extra! Extra! Read all about it. Florida dogs attack alligator!

*note*This isn’t my story and I’m not even going to tell you who sent it to me but here’s the story.

Dog Pack Attacks Gator In Florida

At times nature can be cruel; but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the “apex predator”, can still fall victim to implemented ‘team work’ strategy, made possible due to the tightly knit social structure and “survival of the pack mentality” bred into canines.

See the remarkable photograph below courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator, preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the gator.

Not for the squeamish! To avoid offending the squeamish, I opted not to put the picture on this page. Click here to view the photo!
