Dog Pack Attacks Gator in Florida


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 tight knit social structure and  "survival of the pack mentality" bred into the 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
