A dramatic video of a vicious horse attacking an alligator in Florida has surfaced online. The alligator appears to be calm and minding its own business before one of a string of nearby wild horses speeds towards it and ruthlessly attacks the alligator.
The alligator twists and tries to take a bite of the horse but he is not quite quick enough. The horse then stamps on him again with a deafening crunch.
Visitors to Paynes Prairie, near Gainsville, were audibly stunned by the incident. One person can be heard to say “just leave him alone” while another asks “do you think he’s OK?”
The 30-second clip was captured by Krystal Berry while visiting the state park hoping to see wild horses on Wednesday 12 April.
Speaking to IBTimes US, our sister website, she said: “I thought, ‘This is intense. I never saw anything like this before.”
