66-Year-Old Man Wrestles And Rescues His Dog From 7 Foot-Long Alligator In Its Jaws

66-Year-Old Man Wrestles And Rescues His Dog From 7 Foot-Long Alligator In Its Jaws
World

 Steve Gustafson, 66, was tending to his garden when he heard the pleading cries of Bounce, his West Highland Terrier coming from the garden.

The retired lawyer saw his “best friend” in the jaw of a 7-foot long alligator, and sprang into action without hesitation.

Incredibly, neither Steve nor Bounce were hurt in the incident.

The incident took place on Friday afternoon when the nine-year-old dog was playing at the edge of the pond in the retirement community in Orlando, Florida where she lives with Steve.

The gator grabbed Bounce by the collar and began to drag her into the pool. Steve jumped on top of the creature, and rescued the dog.

The gator was captured a few days later in a trap, and is being sent to a taxidermist.
