Dogs Attack and Kill a Marauding Gator.

Knowing my feelings about alligators (terrified of ’em, hate ’em), my friend Brian, the Air Force Vet, sent me this interesting story and photograph.

Sometimes nature is cruel but there is also a beauty in that cruelty.The alligator, as one of the ultimate predators, can fall victim to the kind of implemented “team work” strategy, which is possible due to the pack mentality and social structure of canines.

The photograph of the attack, courtesy of Nature Magazine, appears here. (Graphic)
