Not sure which is crazier - - horse versus the gator or the people standing that close to the gator in the first place.

Having had a LOT of gator experience, (I've helped tag them and have been in the water with them while wade fishing with a stringer full of fish and not been attacked on many different occasions) Most gators will simply spook away from you if you get close enough.

With this caveat: Momma gator on a nest or with babies WILL attack you.

Last report the horse was in "stable" condition
I love the sound smell of jet fuel in the morning.

Gator was too close to the herd and got schooled.....(notice the gator was not facing the herd, but was facing the water)

I get it! :cheers2:

That gator almost got him a big ol drumstick for dinner. I wonder if the horse could've broke away from the bite if the gator really bit down on that leg? Dunno. Note to self; Avoid gator bites and horse stompings. Neither look fun.
