Dog Pack Kills Alligator 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' in its natural eco-system, can still fall victim to implemented 'team work' strategy, made possible b y the tight knit social structure and 'survival of the fittest pack mentality' bred into canines over the last thousands of years by natural selection.

See the remarkable photograph attached, courtesy of Nature Magazine.

Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while the remainder of the pack prevents the beast from rolling.
Beware! This is not for the squeamish!

What a rip off.

Tiger vs crocodile. And no, it's not funny. Unless you're a sick f**k.
