Warning -- Killer Dog Pack

Alligator killed by dogs!

This is pretty gruesome, but I think you should see it!

An Awesome Display of Cunning Pack Mentality

At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The alligator, an ultimate predator and normally considered the "apex predator" in its ecosystem, can still fall victim to team-work strategy. The tight-knit social structure of the dog pack has been refined by thousands of years of natural selection.

Note that the alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the alligator, which impairs its breathing, while the remainder of the pack prevents the beast from rolling.

They are sooo cute! What kind of pup are they? They look like collie, maybe? Whatever they are, they're very sweet.
You got me- the post is just long enough that you can't see the picture until you finish reading- :lol: !
They look like Corgis.
:lol: :lol: :lol:

I was just reading about alligators and pythons...I think a python ate an alligator, but both died. Sure wouldn't want an alligator in *my* stomach. :eek:
The post is just long enough to hide the picture, I actually thought it was possible.
I was telling my sister about this post, and she was thinking about what kind of dog could take down a gator, until I told her about the picture.
:lol: Love the pups!!!
How funny. You had me. I read the post and was thinking "Wow those are some dogs," and then I saw the picture. Kudos for a great post! :lol:

Dean, I read this on my break @ work and I almost woke all the patients up laughing. Brilliant and you're right about nature.
When I read the title I thought, "Oh no, a gory movie, but knowing Dean, I'm sure there's a lesson to be learned." Ha, Ha, the joke was on me.

On second thought, I should have known you were up to something. Thanks for the laugh. :lol: :lol: :lol:
That was great!!! Thanks for the laugh :lol: :lol: :lol:
