Pack of Dogs kill Gator In Florida
What 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, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally
considered the "apex predator" in it's natural eco-system, can still
fall victim to implemented 'team work' strategy, made possible due to
the tight knit social structure and "survival of the fittest pack
mentality," bred into the canines over the last several hundreds of
years by natural selection. See the attached remarkable photograph

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.
