Man Jumps Into Water After Alligator Snatches His Dog

Man Jumps Into Water After Alligator Snatches His Dog

Most people love their dogs, but how far would you go for yours? Well, one Florida man fought an alligator after it tried to snatch his pet pooch. Watch below:

Footage has been shard online showing the unnamed man wrestling with the hungry gator in a pond last month.

In the pretty scary clip, the man can be seen coming out of the water, struggling to prise the animal's powerful jaws open in order to free the tiny dog.

Eventually, he manages to open them enough for his furry friend to hop out and make its escape.

It's unclear where exactly the incident took place.

Sharing the clip to their TikTok account, Melissa Chipps said: "Would you? Walking the dog in Florida around any body of water this is a risk we take. Florida wildlife be savages sometimes."

A video was shared online showing the huge gator waddling its way across a golf course in Naples.

The footage was captured on the Valencia Golf and Country Club green, as the animal casually made its way across the course before hopping into the water.

He said: "HUGE FLORIDA GATOR! Yep, this monster is real."

There are more than two million alligators living in Florida, and they can grow up to 10 feet long.

Crocodiles are more rare, with 1,500 of the creatures reported to be living there - in fact, they are actually listed as endangered by the federal government.

The huge reptiles are not just native to Florida, of course - Australia is well known for its huge population of crocodiles.

In fact, rangers captured a 350kg (77lb) crocodile in a popular Northern Territory tourist spot - and it was so huge it was the size of a car.

Rangers trapped the 4.4m (14.5ft) saltwater crocodile in the Flora River at a remote nature park 75 miles from the town of Katherine, saying it's the biggest one they'd caught in years (To put that into context, a Vauxhaull Astra measures 4.3m in length, according to buyacar.co.uk).

Katherine senior wildlife ranger John Burke said they'd captured a larger 4.71m (15.5ft) crocodile three years ago in the same wildlife management zone, but that had been caught in the Katherine River, which is closer to the sea.

He added that he did not know of a larger crocodile to have been trapped in the Flora River, where this latest beast was found.
