This is sorta gruesome so if you have a weak stomach it could be unpleasant.







Pack of dogs kill alligator in Florida

Sometimes nature is cruel. But there is also beauty in that cruelty.

The alligator is one of the elite predators in nature. However, even it can fall victim to the 'wolf pack' strategy , made possible due to the canine's intelligence and social structure. A pack of wild dogs in Florida attacked and killed an alligator.

See the remarkable attached photograph courtesy of Nature Magazine.

Please, do not scroll down if you are squeamish!

If I'm remembering correctly, the photo is real, but there was debate as to whether the croc was already dead when the dog chomped him or if the dog actually killed it. (It was taken shortly after Katrina, again, if I remember correctly?)

My money is on the fact that the alligator was already dead. A chained dog wouldn't stand a chance no matter the breed (especially to get that kind of hold on it--aligators are notorious for their death roll).

If it was real that would have been quite the battle.

Maybe it was dieing, and got too close, how else would the dog have gotten ahold of it? Of course it could have been completely posed by the owner I guess.
