Caught on video: Man saves his dog from alligator
Video in Link

quote:

Surveillance cameras captured the moment a Florida man rushed into a pond to rescue his puppy from the jaws of an alligator.

Richard Wilbanks said he followed his instincts when he saw his dog, Gunner, in the gator's grip.

The entire incident was caught on camera thanks to a partnership between the Florida Wildlife Federation and the fSTOP Foundation.

Wilbanks and Gunner are OK now, but the dog owner told WINK the experience taught him a lesson.

“(Pets are) like children to us, so there was no second thought whatsoever," Wilbanks told the news station. “(Gunner) had one little puncture wound, and … my hands were just chewed up."

Chalk one up for Florida Man.

They should have interviewed him instead of his wife.

Awesome for him, but that was a very small gator.

Good call. Old man obviously submerged his poor dog under water for Internet likes.

shows you how strong gators are in the water. A small gator like that gave that man a fight now imagine a 5 to 10 footer. If there's a small pond anywhere in the south gators seem to find them.
