In what sounds like some kind of weird school kid’s fantasy, some tourists happened upon an actual fight between a horse and an alligator this week.
The video — filmed at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park in Florida — starts about halfway through the confrontation, and doesn’t make it clear what happened to provoke the fight.
But the horse had clearly had enough of the gator on his patch, breaking into a sprint and kicking the reptile.
He then has another crack, but this time the gator’s ready for him and bites his leg.
He’s unable to latch on properly though, and both the horse and the alligator are ale to trot away relatively ok.
Watch the video here (it has a little bit of bad language):
Gutsy work by the horse!
