Wow! Two posts in one day! Must be something in the water I've been sipping, eh?
Dog Pack Attacks Alligator In Florida
At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain raw 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 remakable 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 vulnerable underbelly of the alligator.
Don't be squeemish!
